In my classroom I have 6 machines. Systems: 8 (1 machine), 9 (3
machines), 10.3 (Emac) and 10.4 (iBook). All are on our LAN. Both
the latter machines access Classic mode from time to time. Schools
still run OS 9 in many cases. Quantifiable stats I don't have, but I
know it's true. Many of the older machines are on their last legs,
but until they literally keel over, they will be in some state of use.
