@gueorgui agreed. Although with that said, the user experience has not aged very well. :(

So, I got a bit sidetracked with the and started setting up macos9 with software I used back in the day.

Feels weird to use Hotline in its original form...

@karroffel If we were talking about OSX then that would be relatively simple to do. Something tells me that is not the case with Classic Mac OS 9. Keep in mind it's over 20 years old. Also, as far as I know Lynx doesn't support classic mac os at all. the only versions I found were "MacLynx" which were ported by someone back in 1997.

@karroffel If i am not mistaken the last PPC OS9 build of Lynx for mac is from 1997... so... :(

This is probably a long shot, but is there any browser out there for MacOS 9 that supports HTTPS? If i am not mistaken Classilla is the most up to date one, and it doesn't seem to support it.

@amatecha @neauoire I also remember this time when one spent a good majority of their time fighting screen real estate and moving and closing forty finder windows just because you needed to access one text document buried deep down on your hard drive.

For all you participating in Hyperjam, and want to use the Mac II but prefer black and white display...

Given the fact that Merveilles is going nuts for old school Mac OS right now. Does anyone know of any good themes for Linux out there that mimic classic Mac OS? XFCE used to have some good ones I used but I think they are dead now because XFCE switched over to GTK3.

Given the fact that Merveilles seems to be going bonkers over MacOS Classic I decided to relive some of my childhood along with them.

@neauoire mini vMac looks really nice. Has anyone written a tutorial yet how to get set up? I did manage to find a rom but I am stuck on getting System 6 or whatever set up. :/

with that said, I do have a collection of old macs gathering dust here. I just can't be bothered to fix them up.

What are you Merveillians using to run Hypercard? I am guessing you all don't have an old mac sitting around collecting dust. What's the go to classic mac emulator these days?

@mntmn What was the song about 49 minutes in that clip? I loved it!
