How OS 9 will work in intelcore Mac?
Will Intel-based Macs run OS 9? There is an article in Wikipedia that says new Intel-based machines from Apple will not run Mac OS 9.
Other than having no choice why would anyone want to run OS9? It's almost as bad as Windows and that isnt saying much.
Because some high end RIP programs for big printing machines need OS 9
If it is still using OS9 then it isn't high-end anymore. OS X's been with us for over half a decade already.
Those printers cost 2-3 million pesos each. High end doesn't always mean it uses the latest technology.
Some people here post like they know everything. Go figure
Looks like I hurt someone's feelings. Really sorry dude but 2-3M isnt that much of a big deal these days and doesnt make it automatically "high end" by any definition.
High end is relative to the product my friend. Defining high end purely on its monetary value is misleading.
For example, MontBlanc pens are high high end, but they don't cost more than a million I think.
The most powerful Mac Pro configuration amounts to $16000 (I think), but it is high end.
It's relative. For digital printers, 600-800k is the norm, so 3 mil is high enough.
No feelings were hurt though, I'm just surprised
And to get back on topic, There's still no way to install OS 9 on Intel Macs.
i'm working in color separation, still some client using os 9 application. Why mr. jobs jump into conclusion?
tweek, I don't expect you to understand this, but I have clients that have no choice but to run OS 9 because of certain applications. I resent your statement that OS 9 as being 'almost as bad as Windows'. In fact, it's not bad at all; I still believe it's a great OS. It's just that most of us don't have a use for it today. Just because you don't use it, doesn't mean to say it's bad (don't worry, you didn't hurt my feelings either).
vincent, the only way you can run OS 9 is to use a PowerPC based machine. I haven't found a workable solution for Intel based Macs. The only solution I can think of is Windows. If your equipment is Windows compatible, then run Parallels or Bootcamp with it. But as you said, it's the client who is using the OS 9 application. You'll really need a PPC based Mac as a solution.
