Newton Press and NTK (the development environment) are really the two
major apps that regular basis that would require Mac OS 9 or earlier,

emulator; see <> or <http://>) for most people.

Basilisk can be run on Intel or PowerPC Macs as well as under Windows
and Linux, although buggier and not integrated like the Classic
environment was. I believe that serial port support can be be flaky
