I was reading at Club Mac that OSX will include 9.1 -- and that you will be able to choose which version to use at start-up. Anyone know if there is a stand-alone 9.1 installer in the X package? I have a 9500 and got my Electric Image update today. Turns out it requires 9. I'd just as soon get X as well, rather than end up buying the two separately, but I don't want to install on X on the 9500.

There was a rumor not too long ago about X box coming with 3 cd's, 1 with X, 1 with 9.1 and the other with Dev Tools. If this rumor is true, then you'll get a 9.1 cd with your purchase fo X.

So basically, I should wait and see before I order.

Definitely wait... Because OSX needs 9.1 for the Classic environment (and will be somewhat dependent on it for a while because of the programs for Classic - or lack thereof for OSX), X will be shipping with OS 9.1....

Apple says OS 9.1 will be included with OSX.
Here's the link: http://www.apple.com/macosx/requirements/

My concern is that although 9.1 is included, you won't be able to install it without installing X. I'll install X on an iMac, but I want to install 9.1 on a 9500.

The two are independent operating systems... you can install OS 9.1 without installing X... and you can install OSX without installing OS 9.1 (if you don't install OS 9.1, then you won't be able to run software written for the Classic Environment -- which is OS 9.1) SO, they can be installed independent of each other, but there are inherent benefits of installing both...

Thats the way we hope it will be - but we don't know.
They may even have the guts to give us a watered down version of OS9... not even on a seperate disc...
Time and only time will tell.

This past Saturday (03/17/01) I saw build 78 of OS X in a demonstration. You will not have to worry. The installations are separate, and to the best of my knowledge, on two disks.
