Since I have only used OS X, I wonder about Mac OS 9 and OS 8. I have always heard them blasted for freezes and the such by Windows people of course. Were these OS's that unstable or was it just in their nature to freeze every so often? What caused them to freeze/lockup? This is all for curiosity's sake. Any and all information regarding Mac OS before OS X would be of great help to satisfy my curiosity.
