Does this mean that most of Macnn's visitors are now using OS X?
Or has apple's 'death of os 9' ceased all activity?

With only 10% of the Mac user base using OS X I find it hard to believe either. I don't know, but I do believe the kind of people who visit mac forums are among the upper crust of mac users and thus much more likely to be using the new OS.

while true, does that mean that nothing is happening on OS 9 any more?

That's the IT mantra ya know (Progress==Revenue). Sad but true. I follow "if it ain't broke" philosophy with most things in life.

If OS9 rocks your world there is no reason to use anything else.

Same goes for OS/2, MacOS7, etc. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

I`m about to switch soon...only because that`s the way evolution goes, but there`s nothing i can ask for that OS.9.1.x isn`t giving me.
Well, at least in the current situation.
It`s just a rock solid stable workhorse
