What to do with OS 10.1 discs, for example? Throw them away?

Go to eBay and see whether there is any demand for them. But their value maybe pretty minimal. So you'll probably end up chucking them.

I've been thinking about that too. I have OS X Beta, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, OS 9, OS 8, Office 98, Virtual PC 5 w/ Windows 2000, and a couple other titles floating around.

You could make some moolah on ebay for almost all of those apps. Especially OS 9, 10.2 & .3...... IF you price them reasonably & dont overcharge for shipping.

I recently sold a set of G4 restore discs w/10.1 & 9.2 for $18.......not a lot, but better than chuckin 'em to da trash or sittin 'round collectin dust
Personally I find it hilarious that you have the hots for my gramma. Especially seeins how she is 3x your age, and makes your Brittney-Spears-wannabe 30-something wife look like a rag doll who went thru WWIII with a burning stick of dynamite up her a** :)

You mean you don't have them framed and archived?!?!? It's a sign of courage, man - especially those OS 8 and 9 disks - we suffered for those!

Since turning 30, I've started throwing most of that junk out. I keep the newest version and the last version, and that's it.

I do keep my copy of Sound Jam MP for nostalgia

I'll take them! I'd love to have all the old OS 9 and early OS X discs to run on my Digital Audio.

I'd keep them.

And if you need to dispose of, please recycle
