Next to your forward slash key, is the period key. It can come in handy.

You can purchase it from Apple. It has not been released for free as of yet. 7.5 has, I believe, and can be downloaded from Apple.

You can probably order 7.6 on disk from nexcomp.com .

But you're probably wasting your time. The 145B would only support 8 or 14 M of RAM, and 7.6.1 (which is after the free update from Apple) is going to be much bigger and much slower than 7.1. I run 7.1 on all of my older Powerbooks, even my Duo 270. It runs fast, uses no memory, and works fine with the limited applications that you can run on those machines in the first place.

If 7.5 is free then I think 7.6 may be as well. From what I remember, 7.6 was a free updater from Apple. I could be wrong though but go to Apple site to make sure, you could be pleasantly surprised.

This TIL note gives the status for 7.6/7.6.1. I have it bookmarked, and check it every month or so to see if 7.6/7.6.1 has been released for free download. So far, the answer is still no. All you can get is the 7.6 -&gt; 7.6.1 updater.
