Won't it? No. There are changes about to happen soon, so everyone should plan carefully if they have applications that run only in OS 9 or in Classic under X. Classic will be eliminated on Intel machines. The only way to run applications that require OS 9/Classic will be to have a PowerPC- based machine running either native OS 9 or running X with Classic installed. Apple has been very generous by supporting OS 9 via Classic even though OS 9 has been unsupported for years. Of course, if you aren't buying a new Intel mac soon, there is less concern. I know there are many of us running Classic applications, so make sure you are prepared. Brian S.
