I use it occasionally for software that I use so rarely that paying to update the software makes no sense. I also use 9.1 on my old G3 to run a SCSI film scanner and to remind me of what a snappy OS looked like.<br><br>

I haven't used it at home since DP4 came out... I haven't used it at my main computer at work for almost 2 years. I miss some of the apps and the overall snappiness... But I'll never use it full time ever again... nor will I put it on my system ever again...<br><br>
Loc: United States
Use it at work for a few third-party apps, but not at home since I switched to InDesign and upgraded to Panther...<br><br>Actually, for some reason my machine would not boot off the OS9 disk the last time I went for the fresh install, so I just made due without it. I got in the habit of having OS9 on my machines, just in case something went screwy with 10 and I needed to recover some data. Now 10's as rock solid as they come and I haven't needed 9 at all.<br><br>[color:red]C'mon...you know me.</font color=red>
I'm still stuck with it for work. We have many vendors that still won't accept anything but QXP 4 files (and a few "forward thinking test pilots" that will take QXP 5). <br><br>I have zero Classic apps on my PB. And if I do need classic for anything, I plug into my LaCie external, where I still have my Classic stuff. In fact, I may go the same route on my home DT in the near future.<br><br>
OS9 (and prior OS versions) was a great operating system, and I didn't have many problems with it at all. That being said, it seems like OS9 was a real mess now that we have X to compare it to – and 9 is STILL better than ANY flavor of Windows, IMO.<br><br>
