Seems like an utter waste of time.

I don't understand why they call it OS9.2 and use "Classic" in the same sentence. Classic is NOT OS9, but an compatible environment that runs within OSX. OS9 is the bootable OS known as OS9. Why would they mix these up?

I think it would be more worthwhile to work on getting Apple to make Classic compatible with more apps. Anything not compatible with OS9 (the bootable kind) will NEVER work with Classic.

How do I even try this out? I've got quite a collection of older Macs, but no idea how to try this.

Needs screenshots, I don't want it looking like System 4 when it boots. But it sounds awesome, I'd like to see it do well. While I'd like to say it should be portable (IE not hacking MacOS but recreating MacOS), but I don't want it ported to Windows still ;-)

Looks cool, can't get any info on it though. I'll boot it up on a performa or LC soon or something. Might be awesome combined with MoL, just a virtual machine, or into some kind of library (think libwine).
