    Moose and I were wondering:

    Will 9.1 be installed separately from X in the final version? That is, will we be able to boot directly into 9.1 or will we have to use the Classic layer from X?

    I realize you can get 9.1 and install it on a separate drive or partition, but I was wondering if you will be able to boot into 9.1 without doing that.

    I don't think anyone knows yet. My guess is no. OS X will come with a non-bootable version of 9.1

    Yeah, that's what I figured, too. I wasn't sure if Apple had put out any info that was more concrete. Thanks, Cow.

    No big deal, I was planning on getting another hard drive anyway, this will give me an excuse to install X separately just in case I don't like running in Classic. Not saying I won't, but if I know I will only be using non-Carbonized apps on a given day, it might be easier just to boot up in 9.1 and be done with it.

    I can boot directly to classic in the beta.

    That's because your copy of os 9.1 didn't come with os x. We're talking about the version that'll ship with X.
