I've been a Mac owner for two years, and I've never used anything other than OS X. But now, I've been asked to work on a retro OS 9 "colored monitor" iMac. My friend has just upgraded from his old iMac (summer 2000 model) to a new iMac G5. And he's asked me to wipe his old iMac clean so he can give it to his retired parents, who have never owned any computer. He wants them to do basic email, web surfing, and word processing. HELP! What is the most recent version of OS 9? What is the best email/web/wordpro for OS 9? Are OS 9 mail programs any good, or should the just get a Gmail account? Any suggestions as to the best way to do this? Thanks in advance -- MR forum members rule!
