Part II: Working with Applications > Working in the Classic (Mac OS 9) Environm...

Chapter 8. Working in the Classic (Mac OS 9) Environment

Apple started with a relatively clean slate when developing Mac OS X. It developed all new software code based on UNIX rather than simply updating the existing Mac OS 9 code. While this departure enabled the Mac OS X system to be as sleek, fast, and reliable as it is, adopting the radically different code also created a challenge. How would Mac OS X be able to run applications developed for the Mac OS 9 (or older) Mac operating system? Apple’s answer is the Classic environment, allowing you to seamlessly use older software while working in Mac OS X Version 10.2. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to:

  • Enter and exit the Classic environment

  • Start a Classic application

  • Move between Mac OS X applications and Classic applications
