Apple Remember MacOS 9, or Classic as Apple named it once Mac OS X was released? On PowerPC Macintosh machines, you can install a Classic environment which launches a virtualised instance of MacOS 9 whenever you launch a Classic application. This environment has been dropped from Intel releases of Mac OS X, but thanks to SheepShaver, you can still set it up yourself on Mac OS X, Linux, Windows, and even BeOS if you want to. I decided to try SheepShaver on my Ubuntu machine, and discovered just how easy it really is.

I loved OS9 in those days. My last machine was a Umax tower with a G4 CPU upgrade and loads of RAM. Everything was really snappy. But OS9 reached its limits and I guess it was ok that Apple decided to go for a totally new designed OS. Two great games I loved where Prime Target and Damage Inc. as well as those Ambrosia Software games.
