Wow. No idea how I never learnt of this one before! And here I was thinking that perhaps it could be cool to have a slower PPC Mac one day, but... with this and/or the alternatives provided in the thread in the comment below, I guess not!

Anyone has a registration key for this? Couldn't find anything in the enclosed readme file and the demo will only work 20 times....

I recently tried it to install in SheepShaver, but this System Extension isn't compatible to.
SheepShaver will quit when G3 Throttle is installed.

Remember: To switch System Extension off, boot classic Mac OS versions with Shift key down.
