Wow your brave..That's a bit like leaving your reserve parachute behind...Oh well..hope your OS-X bungy rope is still working ?8) Reply 3 of 11 chris v Posts: 460member June 20, 2003 11:30PM You can remove /System/Library/CoreServices/Classic Startup and save 20.6 mb.If you really want to go all out, you can remove the Classic Preference pane from /System/Library/PreferencePanes.It'll save you a whopping 200k!CV Reply 4 of 11 user_23 Posts: 46member June 21, 2003 12:24AM Brave? <grin> No, just finally glad to leave OS9 in the dust.As a pro graphic designer....thinking back upon the years & years of Quark locking up my whole system....photoshop crashing due to weird memory issues, ad infinitum/nasaeum....I just don't want to have the slightest reminder of what I can only call "hell" left on my Mac. Sheesh...already I can feel my bile rising just at the thought of my whole system (os 9) being stalled while I output color to some proofing device...or, for that matter, ANY task (practically).With Quark 6, Illustrator 10, Photoshop 7, InDesign 2, Acrobat 6 Pro, OS X's built in PDF support....damn, what more could a Designer-type need?sorry for my little tirade, & thank you all for your extremely friendly advice.cheers!user_23 Reply 5 of 11 user_23 Posts: 46member June 21, 2003 12:26AM <grin> Removing the Classic Pref Pane has made my system twice as snappy! thanx again for the advice!user-23 Reply 6 of 11 shanksta Posts: 96member July 16, 2003 11:36AM I also tried to do this but I cant delete the OS 9 system folder even as the root user...What should I do?

Yum. Reply 10 of 11 dark seraph Posts: 104member July 17, 2003 12:57PM Quote:Originally posted by Messiah Panther's FontBook. Yum. is this why Adobe didn't bother with a font manager? Did Apple give a some sorta heads up that they were planning on making a font manager built into the OS? Does this mean the end of Suitcase/Font Reserve/Fontagent Pro?things I have been wondering Reply 11 of 11 cdong4 Posts: 194member July 17, 2003 5:07PM I don't see why Adobe would even want to compete with Extensis' offerings. Suitcase is an amazing program, hopefully FontBook in Panther is an adequate substitution. Although from what I hear it has no server access functionality, not that I need it, but still, bad on apples part. Sign In or Register to comment.
