is it worth upgrading
I have 8.6 installed and its fairly stable.... but i am thinking of upgrading.... so what i want tro know is if you people think it is a worthwhile upgrade or just a waste of time....

I guess i could also wait for OS X but thats a long way away....

Unless you really want one of the new features in Mac OS 9, don't get it now. Mac OS X will be available in a few months.

OS 8.6 is faster than OS 9.0 (except for the internet). And it is very stable.
If I were you, I would keep OS 8.6 and wait for OS X., unless you absolutely want file encryption, web sharing, multiple users, etc..
Keep also in mind that OS 9.0 uses more memory...

Thanks for your help.. it seems it is best for me to wait for OS X later this year instead...
