I thought it was only not installed by default, but still on the dvd or are you not referring to Rosetta which I had to install to play Diablo 2? SheepShaver shares a lot of code with BasiliskII, which can be used to cater for your 68xxx emulation needs.

Your Answer

Some blatant self-interest-driven request: If anyone is interested, we over at emaculation. Oh it is… it is. Especially when the even deader OS is emulating the… less dead one. An equivalent would be Windows 3. Its interesting to compare the two OS… In particular the lack of a command line. I think the thing that surprised me most about going back to OS9 was it works… yes, daft as it sounds, I was surprised how much I could do.

It could play my DVDs ok it was a tower so it played them with a windfarm in the background, but we will ignore that play music, happily handle osnews, facebook, gmail etc. But its actual OS foundation was utter shite… I still remember having to play with the correct extension mix and in some cases starting order in order to get a stable system.

A simple example of what I consider bloat is dashboard retaining large chunks of memory while the feature is not in use. Mac OS X as a whole is remarkably inefficient and heavy.

Memory requirements to run OS X acceptably are absolutely insane, and no matter how powerful your Mac, responsiveness is always sticky and syrupy. Windows 7 is far lighter on resources and much more responsive than Mac OS X. I also have a similar vintage thinkpad, with a faster Pentium M processor vs. The OSX machine is as responsive as the Wintel one. No seriously! Looks like this might be a ticket into modern times or halfway there anyway.
