Edit by: os9er (20 September 2019, 1:32 PM PST) : The first uploaded screenshot seems to be of the RTM release of Panther rather than this Developer Preview; I have added a different picture of this build running on my iBook G3/500 (Mid-2001) for the sake of accuracy.

I wonder if this build has the beta intro seen in many YouTube videos

I still wonder if Classic on this developer preview works as properly as Jaguar's Classic does, or if as crappily as retail Panther does. This is to be looked into. Fortunately MDDs can probably boot this, so now I can try doing something about it...

Be it from this or from Jaguar, a personal goal of mine is to see the best version of Classic to be imported into 10.4 Tiger, which we not only don't know if it will work, but even if it does, it may be more complicated than just copying files over + fixing permissions etc.. (Likely, anyway.)

But one has to try to know.
