"Great OS update!"

January 17, 2004

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

I updated my OS 8.0 with no problems, BUT, before I installed it, I got major errors. I ended up re-installing my OS 8, then installing the update. After doing that, I didnt get any errors. My system was the Performa 5215CD. But, my Apple TV/Video system didnt work well, after you captured, the video would get off of the audio. Also, AppleShare, was VERY SLOW. I recommend updating to OS 8.1, then update EVERY AppleShare, and software you have.

"Best choice for BasiliskII"

November 07, 2003

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

Mac OS 8.1 is the latest version to use on 68k macs, which means the best choice for emulators (there's no PPC emulator for uindoze). If you like Mac but have to use PC and choose to emulate Mac, you'll be suprised with the speed and stability of the OS. Just if there were no bugs in emulators..

"If you are running 8.0, GET THIS!"

October 13, 2001

 |  Version: Not Found

Summary

This will majorly improve Mac OS 8.0. 8.1 is more stable and contains support for extended hard drives. You may say this is the first step towards 8.5 and the newer generation of the Mac OS. However, if you don't have atleast 16 MB of Ram, you'd better stick with OS 7.x or upgrade!
