What's your essential Mac OS 9 software?
« on: November 05, 2016, 05:50:17 AM »
I think this thread fits in all subforums, hence putting it in the root of the "Classic software" section.

Im curious to hear what your essential Mac OS software is, that is what you can't live without on your machine and perhaps is the first thing you install.

This is excluding your DAW or sequencer of choise.

I really can't live without these:
  • Classilla
  • VNCThing
  • MacSSH
  • Stuffit
  • BBEdit
  • Toast
  • ProcessInfo
  • Photoshop 7
  • Transmit

So what's yours? :)

Sorry if this is in the "wrong" area, where is a good place to download archived applications that are categorized similar to this:
For OS9: This directory
10.1:
10.2:
Etc……

Basically if you use a site similiar to oldapps and such you have to know somewhat of a version that you want and then most times the links are dead.

Thanks
