I used to be a desktop publisher of a catalog (for ten years). I have used Photoshop 3.4 for many thousands of menu and button commands. I can run it in my sleep. I don't need most of the features on the later versions. I have later versions and they are harder for me to do what I want. I also have the same affinity to Filemaker. I think it's 2.1. Anyway, it's hard for an old dog to learn new menus. I have been hanging on to the last 1.25 Dual processor Mac on which you could just wipe the drive and load 9.2.2 or what ever the last version of classic OS was and you could run all the old apps going back to the pre-PowerPC dedicated apps. This computer runs them all just fine but I want the latest G5 tower. I understand that some of the classic apps can run from within OS X and somehow X emulates the classic OS or something like that. But I am told that the problem is that many of the older classic apps will not load onto the later or any of the G5s. So I'm trying to see if any of you have had any luck with this issue or if its just a lost cause. The apps I want to load the most are Photoshop 3.4 and maybe the pre-power PC version of Filemaker I'm pretty sure its 2.1. Please no lectures about keeping up with the new programs I have Photoshop 4 and 7. Just don't use them. Tried but a pain in the behind for me. 3.4 is etched in my brain. I will greatly appreciate any help on this issue.
