Because it got dated heavily with time. OS9 is, in essence, not much different than the first Mac OSes the Apple 128K had.
Also, he had to do something with all his NeXTStep shite
Even since I heard about Rhapsody (OS X's prototype predecessor) I was very excited.
OS 9 is really useless today. Yes, it runs with quite a lot of speed in my iBook, but I have no apps to use it.
