Not off topic at all. I'd say aim most of your work towards OSX - 
Apple dropped support for 9 over a year ago. Rev's handling of the UI 
between the two is sweet however and often doesn't need much 
tweaking. More tweak would be needed for the windoze side.

Having said that - there's a large contingent of OS 9 users out 
there, and love it. These folks found a groove with the setup they 
have and have no need for change. This is a testament to the overall 
longevity of the platform. Many of them are entertainment or media 
related and have many legacy audio and video apps and specialty 
software that's tied to hardware.
