It's been ages since I booted my iMac Snow into OS9, but I did it again just to play around with it and realized I had totally forgotten about all of the amazing things about OS9!! First off, there was TONS of software on my OS9 partition that was all extremely useful. There are tons of old Classic programs available for free or really cheaply that rival the productivity of modern apps. Here's what I have on my partition: Clarisworks Photoshop 6.0 Acta Outliner Office '98 iTunes 2 Alpha Centauri Deus Ex Next, there's the overall working environment. Finder is insanely fast and the spatial paradigm is actually consistently implemented. Resizing windows doesn't take forever. I also really like the overall look of the system, it's just refreshing and minimalistic compared to flashy OSX. This G3 honestly rivals modern Macs in OSX in terms of responsiveness. Also, some comments on the different apps: iTunes 2 is what iTunes should be all about. It's really, really fast and easy to use, unlike horribly bloated and slow iTunes 8. It launches almost instantly. Office 98 and Clarisworks are definitely faster than Office 2008 under OSX on a new Mac. This is also the reason why I use Office 2003 on my Vaio instead of 2007. Acta Outliner is great. Web browsing is terrible, but also useful in a distraction-free way. I can access sites like Pubmed and Wikipedia easily, but Youtube doesn't really work Any thoughts from you guys?
