Classic, Netscape 4, Photoshop 4, Livemotion 1 - so long guys.

This is something of a momentous day. I’ve finally decided that it’s time to ditch Classic Mac OS on my G4. That means goodbye to Photoshop 4, good bye to Livemotion 1.0 (which annoyingly has no options for output to other vector based formats - so I’m losing some work too) and goodbye to Netscape 4. And whilst Mac OS 9, Photoshop and other applications have been deleted from Classic without much thought, letting go of Netscape 4 has been much more emotional. I can only think this is because Netscape was so much a part of the explosion of the web in the mid 1990’s, somehow surfing with Netscape 4 brings back memories of all that excitement. So, bye bye Netscape 4. It was great knowing you, we spent a lot of time together, and even though we got on less well towards the end - when CSS caused so much trouble between us - I can say we’re parting on good terms. Goodbye old friend. [Empties Trash]
