Actually to think outside of the box, ALL you need to do is to detect 
ANY essential lower level process that can be found ONLY in OS X but 
will not be found in OS 9.

Examples are the Window Server or /System/Library/Core/pbs (pasteboard).

If you really need to check for classic then you will have to look 
for the string "TruBlueEnvironment" when the list of processes is 
returned to you.
