In Classic Goes Out with Nary a Whisper Chris Adamson wonders if anyone will really miss Classic mode on the new Intel Macs.
I don’t think most people will miss Classic. I had to rebuild my Powerbook a few weeks ago, and I decided not to install Classic at all. There were a handful of games I wanted to be able to play, but I really haven’t missed them at all.
There are ways to run Classic on Intel Macs. One useful page is VNC, Basilisk II, and SheepShaver: 3 Ways to Run Classic on an Intel Mac.
