    New Powerbooks and OS9

    I've got a TiBook and have been happy with it, but I'm thinking up getting a new PowerBook. Since I still have to use several older applications that only run under OS9, I need to make sure the new PBs support OS9.

    Apple's web site wasn't especially helpful.

    Does anyone know for sure?

    You can still old applications through OS X through an application called "Classic" which is bundled with OS X.

    The PowerBooks will not *boot* into OS 9 though. The PowerMac G4s were the last machines capable to do so.
