OS9 and classic w/ bew G5 - Mac Software Discussions on AppleInsider Forums Toggle navigation All Forums Recent Posts Sign In OS9 and classic w/ bew G5 einreb Posted: June 19, 2004 2:26PM in Mac Software edited January 2014 Did I read somewhere that 9 will not run on the new G5's. Is this true? And if it is true does that mean will not boot in 9, or does it mean that it will also not run in classic. Thanks in advance.

However, neither boots into MacOS 9. However ... I expect to see Classic on shipping Macs at least until MacOS X 11.0, which may be another 12 or so years away. There is no need to remove Classic. It works. Many customers need it. It doesn't hurt those who don't need it. My Classic System Folder at 292 MB and my Applications (Mac OS 9) folder at 335 MB will fit on a single CD. The combined space that they occupy is a drop in the bucket on my 160 GB hard disk. Hard disks are getting bigger, but Classic isn't. Sign In or Register to comment.
