I have Mac OS 9.2.2 installed on my iMac, but rarely use it. And with Panther on the way, I'll be using OS 9 even less than I already do.

Still love 9. It's fast and furious on my "ancient" hardware and does everything I want without fuss or bother.

And I'm not ready to dump my girlfriend just cause another pretty face comes along.

Dance with the lady you came in with fellas.

what about those who are still running 8.1? where's our clubhouse?


not that I really care .. just thought I'd question it .. me I'm running Panther on one system, Jaguar Server on another, OS 9.2 on my mint Bleuberry (yes I know I spelt it wrong) and 8.1 on my 5300c (which in thanks to a eBay purchase and help from Bill at NorthStar in Barrie - is a portable once again)

Of course 8.1 is welcome, it's just the baby brother.

This is the "REAL" Mac forum, no sissified Gen X'rs here.

Real Mac'ers don't repair permissions.

My daughters 7100 runs Photoshop 4 just fine...

Anything later and the scsi scanners driver willnot work...

Sure I could get a better OSX scanner for under $100... but where is the fun in that...

I no longer use it, but thanks for reviving this thread, it was a nice walk down memory lane.

It gave me the urge to rebuild my desktop, and install RamDoubler. :)

They way OS 9 would just lock up solid when you ran out of RAM was TEH AWSUM!!!!!?!!!

:)

Actually, I do keep a form of OS 9 around. I have Sheepshaver installed and use it to play ONE game. Sometimes I can't believe I waste a GB of hd space just for this one thing, but I do kinda also keep it around to prove to naysayers that it can be done, OS 9 can still run in a limited way on an Intel Mac.
