I had to work on my dad's Mac II a few weeks ago. It's unbelievable how
fast System 6 boots. Doesn't run Myth very well, though. ;^}

I agree with the principle that you ought to work with a system that does
what you need it to do and does it right. FB runs wonderfully on 7.6.1, so
why not write your code on that? If you're distributing your software, you
have to qualify it against the newer Mac OS releases, of course (I have to
make a living, too.:^)
