I'm forced to disagree. System 9.1 (the latest you can run on this
system) is actually faster than versions of 8. They got rid of a lot of
underlying useless code that had gotten left behind in various updates.
Plus, having a 7500 (which I use at work, BTW) is a great machine because
it is so upgradable. I suggest finding an upgrade on eBay for cheap. An
old Newer card may only set you back under $100 but can seriouslly
improve speed. Go for a G3 if you can find it.
