This comparision points out the truth about the second software
crisis we can observe today, - even if the old Mac OS software
is no ideal... ;)

However, assume the Mac OS software from mid 80s would run on
that AMD X2. I once run a car racing game designed for the
timing of a 80286 on a Pentium1, and it performed like hell - so
it was unusable ;)
