10.3: Bring the OS 9 Apple Menu to the 10.3 menu bar Classic
In Panther, there is now a Classic Status menubar icon. If you enable it (via the checkbox on the Start/Stop tab of the Classic system preferences panel), you'll get an additiona menubar item that allows you to turn Classic on and off, etc.

As seen here, this menu also contains a link to your Classic Apple Menu, which you can navigate through the heirchal/nested folders that appear (of which there seems to be no maximum number you can access). It's like having your old Apple Menu back in OS X!

[robg adds: I haven't used Classic in quite a while. In testing this hint, I was impressed at how much nicer it's gotten in the last couple of years. The Apple menu is a nice touch, and the startup sequence has been greatly improved -- it's not only faster, but the dock icon is used as a fancy meter to show launch progress. Check out this short video clip of the Classic dock icon if you'd like to see what I mean without actually launching Classic.]

Didn't notice that before, pretty cool. I don't have the Apple Menu items though. How do you get that?

What is kind of cool about this is that you can load up your Cassic system's Apple Menu items folder with OS X applications and launch them from there.
