OS9 mode, or 'classic' is a pain in the rear.  It has to boot up OS9 in the
background.  Then you're running SIMS on top of Open Transport on top of
BSD/Darwin.  In that case I would rather use Sendmail.

I don't get that comment.  You just run SIMS ,and the OS is taking care of all the "classic mode-OT-on-top-of-BSD/Darwin" stuff invisibly. You don't have to *do* anything. All you actually *do* is double-click.

Everything else you mentioned would invisibly be affecting your performance, true, but *to what degree* is a "wait-and-see" issue. We could all be running on dual-processor 650 mHz machines by then. Depending on your own user environment, there might be no measurable impact.

And getting back to the first post,  SIMS would run better Carbonized, but it should just run, regardless.

Any plans to make SIMS Carbonized/Altivec-enabled/Multi-processor aware?
