Yes, but that was more like NeXTStep with a menu bar than it was the MacOS X finder. It had the same look but didn't operate like classic MacOS.

Just a heads up... MacLife magazine has an article called "10 Things We Miss From OS 9" in it's current issue. It's a good quick read.

The only app I still boot in 9 for is GlobalFax. If I could replace this with something even remotely similar I would be thrilled. As it stands, the program is brilliant.

And yes I know, who faxes anymore?

I do.

"Command Period" to stop a print. Stopping prints or rather deleting print jobs was a nightmare in Jaguar and improved only slightly by the time Tiger was mature. I eventually wrote a one click Apple shell script and placed the icon in the dock but a simple printus interuptus should be part of the OS. No idea if Leopard has addressed this issue.

Macros in AppleWorks. Still end up booting in OS9 to print envelopes.

It (and all previous versions) did actually address this issue. I'm surprised you don't know about it.

Click and hold on the printer icon while a job in queue. Opens a panel. Click "pause" or "delete" or "stop," whatever applies to what you want to do.

I'll admit it's not QUITE as easy as "cmd-period" but point out that it's more precise.

Printing envelopes is child's play in Address Book. Now if I could just get Apple to add the ability to print RETURN address labels ... grrr ...

Extremely cumbersome especially when trying to stop a large job from spooling to a very fast laser printer. Usually you click "stop" just to give yourself time to think. After the first time you manage to delete the job instead of the printer. More often than not you forget to restart the printer which then hangs on the next job.

I'll stick with my one click AppleScript. It simply clears all print jobs in a fraction of a second.

Too bad there's no Mac OS 9 in Leopard, standard out of the box. I have some apps that would really like to use. I'm going to try SheepShaver...

I made this Mac OS 9 background:
