Phasing out OS 9, Here Comes Jaguar
Meanwhile, anecdotal reports from MWNY indicate that Steve Jobs hinted that next year's Macs would not support booting into OS 9. (Classic would presumably remain supported). Previous rumors had also hinted that the new motherboards would not OS 9. (Note: all current Macs, except the XServer, will boot OS 9)
Update: Jaguar is GM (6C115), according to our source.
