Part I: Lay of the Land > Mac OS 9, Mac OS X, and Classic

Chapter 3. Mac OS 9, Mac OS X, and Classic

Mac OS X is way ahead of its time. When Apple developed this hybrid operating system, they knew it would take a while for application developers to Carbonize their applications to run on Mac OS X. Rather than locking out older software entirely, Apple made it possible to run both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X on the same system, and took it a step further by building a Mac OS 9 virtual machine into Mac OS X, called The Classic Environment, or just Classic.

This chapter covers some of the changes between Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X, and introduces you to Classic.
