OSX only Boot In New year, What are Disk utils going to do?
So from (sometime in) January all new Mac's are only going to be able to boot OSX, no OS9 booting at all. What is going to happen to commercial disk utils like Norton and Disk Warrior? These apps require to be booted from a separate drive to do there disk repair activities. They currently ship with OS9 booting disks, but when OS9 boot is disabled, in hardware by Apple this is no longer going to be possible. Will apple create a special OSX for them (like boot's on the install disk), or will they be allowed to create there own? They can't expect users to create there own, via some util (not all users will have a CDR drive).
