First of all a big thank you to ranch hand David Mason for pointing me to this site. The cattle drive will give me the challenges I need to learn, something a book on its own can't do.
But before I can go for it I need to know if I can do this course with my Mac.
I'm running MacOS 10.2.5 which has Java 1.4.1 as standard.
I think this will let me do the Java and OOP assignments but I don't know about this Orion or MySQL stuff thats mentioned later on (If I ever get that far!). Will it work?

That is the whole advantage of JAVA - write once, run anywhere.
From what I have seen MySQL has MAC versions as well.
So, throw your hurricane deck on your caballo and help us move them doggies on.

I don't see why not. Particularly if you have OS X. As long as you can compile and run java you'll be ok!

Thanks to both of you for your help.
