    Do you still use OS 9 or classic? NOTE: This goes for any Mac you use, whether at home or work.

    Now that Intel and Leopard have officially eliminated OS 9 and classic, and Snow Leopard is about to eliminated PPC, I wanted to see to what extent OS 9 is still being used.

    I still have a Power Macintosh from the 90's that runs OS 7 and I'm going to get a PowerBook G4 12" in January that will have Classic. The Power Mac is used to play old games, as will the PowerBook among other things.

    When I was 5 or so, we had a Performa 575. It ran System 7 I think? As far as OS 9 goes, I've never used it.

    There should be a fifth option in the above poll: How many people still need to use OS 9 but have an intel machine?

    I use OS 9 in SheepShaver on my Macbook to run some old chemical modeling and genetics simulation software for school.

    I would include that under "Use OS 9 only in classic mode" as both are in emulation.
