all versions should run fine under classic, mine runs only a couple of %
slower than on the old Mac OS. Marcel Weiher has a Cocoa port (a work in
progress), which runs at about 2/3 the speed of the one under Classic. It is
widely believed to be much the result of gcc generating poorer code than

John McIntosh has mostly converted the Mac VM to Carbon, but the current Mac
VM isn't recognized as such, and so won't run other than under Classic. I
suppose something must be changed to the compilation as well.
