How to run Classic (pre OS X) apps on Intel Macs
Authored by: lewsmind on May 18, '06 05:34:25AM

Those are some interesting replies. I'm just confused how someone can have the money to buy an intel machine, but no money to upgrade software. How about you upgrade that software first?

I do understand about needing old software to control even older hardware. But again, how about some hardware upgrades?

OS 9 has been dead for 4 years, lets all let it go.

How to run Classic (pre OS X) apps on Intel Macs

It is quite possible for software upgrades to total MORE than the cost of new hardware. Software can be VERY expensive. I got a font editor for less than a hundred bucks 20 years ago. Now it's several hundred, and doesn't even have all the features of the old software. I am planning to use vMac to run FONTastic Plus 2.0.2 and other System 6 software which to this day still have no OS X equivalent. Apple's killing of OS 9 does not magically make new and affordable software appear. Hey, I wish it did.
