Apple releasing Mac OS 9.0 for free

Following in the footsteps of the release of System 7.5.3 for free in January 1999, Apple has decided to give away Mac OS 9.0 operating system for free since it’s been replaced by Mac OS X, and not used by OS X’s Classic (Mac OS 9.2.2 is required for Classic.). Sources at Apple have said that since 9.0 runs on all PowerPC Macs and Mac OS 9.2.2 doesn’t, Apple has decided to release 9.0 to support its past customers who have Power Macintoshes that have PowerPC 601, 602, 603 or 604 processors. Mac OS 9 can be updated to 9.1 using a free updater available from Apple’s website.
