However, if you have an older Mac that is not supported by OS X or some of the slower G3 machines (like the WallStreet, which officially supports up to OS X 10.2.8 Jaguar), there is still a strong case to be made for running OS 9 – and there are also certain software applications that are only supported in OS 8/9 that may be mission critical for some users.
I bought an old iBook G3/500 (it’ll arrive tomorrow) because I’ve always wanted an Mac OS 9 laptop (I’ve had several desktop OS 9 machines over the years). This article is a nice starting point for those (oh so very few) of us who want to run OS 9 in today’s world.
Where’s the link to the guide?
Looks like you were so excited to brag about your new laptop that you accidentally forgot to post the link.
I have an iMac G4 in my basement. I’ve always wanted to try something like installing Mac OS 9 on it, just for that old-school Mac feeling it would bring.
