Other World Computing (Expo booth 2323) today began demonstrations of its software for Mac OS X at Macworld Expo San Francsisco. Version 3.0 will enable users of older machines to boot the Macintosh OS X 10.x from an external FireWire drive using a FireWire PCI card. Other enhancements to the new version include an updated interface and integrated support of the L2 and L3 cache on G3 and G4 CPUs, which will significantly accelerate the installation process, as well as support for CD booting. XPostFacto 3.0 will be available before the end of the quarter, and will be distributed for free, with an optional $10 registration fee.
