Mac OS X Applications vs. Classic Applications

Mac OS X supports two types of Mac OS applications:

  • Mac OS X applications are those written specifically for Mac OS X. These programs take advantage of many of the new features of Mac OS X and use its new interface for menus, commands, and onscreen display. You can usually identify Mac OS X applications by the "Made for Mac OS X" label on them.

  • Classic applications are those written for Mac OS 9.x and earlier but not rewritten for Mac OS X. These programs must be run in the Classic environment, which utilizes Mac OS 9.1.
