Chapter 4. Working with Folders, Files, ... > Running Classic Applications

Running Classic Applications

Using the Classic environment is a way for you to operate some older Mac software while still using the Mac OS X operating system. If you use Classic, almost any application that was functional in Mac OS 9 can run inside Mac OS X.

You must have at least 128MB of memory to use Classic. Also, a 400MHz G3 (or faster) computer is recommended. Why? Classic is a process running under Mac OS X. When it's in use, your computer is really supporting two operating systems simultaneously. As you can imagine, this is resource intensive.
