    With Photoshop 7 here and Flash MX & Fireworks MX betas out it looks like Mac OS 9's months are numbered.

    What OS 9 apps can you not live without?
    Here's my list;

    Amorphium (Very easy, very cool)
    Carrara (I was just starting to get good at this one so I'm sticking with it)
    Poser (Still need somebody to stand in the middle of my 3D scene)
    Starry Night (I love the night vision feature!)
    TypeStyler (Way more versatile than most think!)

    also,
    Norton Utilities (for defragging)

    ...and Photoshop must-have filters;
    KPT 5 & 6
    Nik Sharpener
    BoxTop Pro JPEG

    This list is much shorter than it was a couple months ago.

    p.s. How about something like Kaleidoscope for X?!

    The only reason I go back into OS9 is to scan.

    Dreamweaver.

    Just cuz my computer is 2 years old:
    Quicktime.
    Firewire.

    Quicktime because quicktime on osx with a g3 is too slow, and firewire refers to my third party firewire card.

    resedit
    hypercard
    GOOD, INTUITIVELY interfaced netscape
    all those old games found everywhere on the net
