    I liked Nanosaur that OS 9 had but I prefer OS X.
    Is there any way to play the original Nanosaur in Mac OS X?

    For the reason that I like to be able to run modern software on my computer I would have to go for Tiger. It's the same reason that I don't run my PC on windows 95.

    I like both. Classic has its own elegance to me- it made me want a Mac. But when I got my mac with Tiger I was happily impressed, so it doesn't make a huge difference to me.

    I hated OS9, we had to use it on some old 450mhz PM G4s, they were sadly the only machines with Final Cut, where as the lovely lovely 800mhz iMac G4s were OSX with iMovie... :rolleyes:

    I've learnt to hate OS9 for it's lack of productivity... <Ok, lets get some work done, ok, imported all the footage, let's just get a rough edit ont he time... oh wait it's crashed... ok, let's re-import that footage then...>

    OSX is where it's at.

    In my opinion Windows 2000 was far superior to OS 9 at the time. Windows 2000 managed memory much better, had a lot more software support from major companies, and viruses weren't THAT big of a deal back then like it is today.

    Out comes Mac OS X, out comes more viruses and stuff that ruins PCs, that's when Mac OS X turned superior.

    As soon as Windows gets better if it ever does, I will switch to that. I use whatever better suits my needs and right now OS X is.

    Tiger since I'm guessing your computer can't run Leopard…

    This is no longer a fair comparison. OS 9 is long unsupported by everyone.

    Compare OS X, Vista and Ubuntu to OS 9,and you'll see why its silly to compare them.

    I found OS9 a disgrace and was the reason I didn't like to use the Macs at college. OSX turned me from disregarding Macs completely to wanting one, and soon after buying one and haven't bought a non-Mac computer since.

    9 was pretty good compared to 7 and 8.

    I stuck with OS 9 until the release of 10.2 as 10 and 10.1 sucked!

    Do you mean XP? Or all Windows versions since OS9 first came out? If it's the second one, all I have to say is "Windows ME".

    I'm still looking for a way to make my eMac running Panther to look like OS 7 (the monochrome version).

    For the sake of old school, i'll say I liked OS 9. But its outdated. Moving on.

    To play this game, and IMO...


    OSX > XP > OS9/Win95 > ME > Vista > OS8

    Never used 7 so I can't place it. If I could run DirectX (not the old ones) within OSX then I'd cut out my Bootcamp partition and get that 32gb space back. XP for work and games, OSX for work and rest.

    yeah, i think that's about right. for me it's osx > xp ~ vista > win2k > os9 since i've only used those op systems. vista is catching up to xp because sooner or later manufacturers will stop writing drivers for xp (win7 will phase out xp). plus, when i was in elementary school, i had bad luck with the imac g3's running os9; every imac i used froze during usage :eek: even when playing nanosaur. win2k is [was] pretty stable back in the days...

    You guys are silly. Its:

    OS X > Win2k > XP > Vista > Win98 > ME > OS 9 > OS 8.6

    For all the people out there that are still OS 9 lovers, all I have to say is..

    Remember that Bomb that used to pop up when the computer crashed, telling you to restart? Remember how every time you'd click restart everything including the cursor would freeze? THEN, you'd have to take a paperclip, stick it in the side, and hope to god you poked the right spot to make it restart? I'd take one of ME's bluescreens over that.
