    Thx for your info.
    The Software is all legitimate.
    Adobe products are expensive.
    You think I would get alot of people interested in it though for $200 CAN?
    Thx
    Again

    I don't think that many people would be interested in OS 9 and the other software which you have there. It's more likely that they'd be interested in the machine as an OSX platform. 400Mhz is still enough to run it (in fact it seems to be getting easier to run it...)

    Though they may have been worthwhile selling with the computer a while ago, I believe that nowdays you would get more for the unit selling the hardware and software separately.

    Nobody is interested in OS9 anymore (except for legacy apps and even then its within the Classic environment).

    In fact, the software may not be worth selling at all, sadly. As nobody uses OS9 anymore, it stands to reason that nobody wants software for it.

    The software is for OS9, right?

    By the way, Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, Sherlock 2, Yahoo and MSN Messenger, Limewire, WMP, Shockwave are all freeware and worth zero.

    And no, my name isn't in reference to that band. lol it was a game name to scare people :rolleyes:
