I've been using OS 9 a lot lately, mostly on my PowerBook G3 (Lombard) and eMac, and I was wondering if anyone had some software recommendations. I have Classilla for a web browser, and I'm not sure for everything else. I was looking mostly for an IRC client, a torrent client, and an email client. But I would appreciate some advice on other software. For instance, is Quicktime the best media player for OS 9 or should I look for alternative? Is Apple Works better than Microsoft Office? Is iTunes the best available music player? And are there some optimisations that I should consider? I have had a look around on various abandonware sites, so I know some of the software. But I'm not sure of what's really worth installing. Is OS 9 worth trying to use as a general purpose system, or would it be better to just stick to OS X and use OS 9 for specific applications?
