    It have to run through a PPC emulator (SheepShaver in this case )so don't expect it will scream

    For everyone asking...

    Its pretty slow. I've used Sheepshaver on my iMac Intel Core Duo 17" as well, UI response is slow at least.

    But at least you can use IE5 for Mac to surf the web XD

    To wandering piscean:

    thats awesome! I wish we could just do this through boot camp or some sort of VM ware.

    Well, I've tried this, and I'd say that actually it isn't too bad. The startup time is under 10 seconds and it does actually run the apps pretty well, it just slows down if you try to run more than like 2 or 3 things at once.

    OS 9 is so clean, simple, & retro. It's too bad there isn't really too much software for it that has been updated recently. (There are a few, such as Classilla.)
