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.

Totally off topic, but I can't help but notice your gnome fonts look way nicer than the Ubuntu defaults. What's your secret? Are they the OSX fonts or what?

I use Trebuchet MS for everything (it's in the Core Fonts for the Web package), 8 point, bold for window titles. My fixed width font is much harder to come by, as it ships with Windows 7: it's called Consolas.

Subpixel smoothing, set to slight.
