Generally aNanyone with an older Mac cannot upgrade to OSX - unless
the buy a new processor card and for that much they might as well
save for a new machine. It means the people who have a working
machine and not a lot of expendable income may be stuck at OS9. Not
very nice but that is what it is.
They will not be using Safari they will be using IE5 most likely
because that was the "best" browser for OS9 - at least the most CSS
compliant one. They may be a non-profut or just someone who got
handed down a free machine. I do not think anyone knows the
percentage of OS9 users - but I could be wrong.
I guess if it is about selling a lot of pricey stuff then don't worry
about them but if it is about accessibility... It is a judgement call
and some extra work.
It all goes back to know your audience.
