I needed to make some higher resolution exports from some old ClarisDraw files. So I plugged in the Lombard PowerBook and powered it up. Not only did it work first try but it booted into OSX 10.2 very quickly. The only modern command I missed was the two finger scroll. The backup CD and the superdrive still worked and I moved the files over to the HD. The Classic environment and ClarisDraw booted fine. After some familiarization and a few font adjustments the exports to PIC were done. Then I had to convert them to PNG. The modern computer apps couldn’t read PIC. But the old Quicktime 7 converted them to PDF and I was home free.
Kind of a fun process.
