OSX vs. OS9
Authored by: Azark on Feb 19, '04 04:53:24PM

I'm a kind of mac hotline for all my friends using macs.
On +/- 20 macs, 4 are on OSX (two are mine)

For some of my collectors, the reason why are obvious ;)
(mac+ (OS6), classic color(OS7), quadra 900(a/ux), etc.)

For the rest, the main reasons are:

Old hardware or not enough RAM or disk space, don't want to upgrade.
(i.e.One of them has a Bondi blue with 32MB, I convinced him to buy 128MB and install 0S 9, and that was hard ;)

Still not all soft ported or have to pay to upgrade. This is mainly in audio pro domain. (ever checked how much a Waves bundle cost?)

Don't forget people using macs at work (i.e.in education) where they're still using OS 9 on 'old' iMacs...

Lot's of people don't even know what is OS X, they use the system installed when they bought it.

This is a pain for me as i'm slowly forgetting about OS 9 tricks...
