Vampire vs Fusion Mac OS

So looking at youtube I see several demostrations of Mac OS running at very good speed on Vampire Gold core.

Is Mac OS 8.1 the final version?

What productivity software is usabe on it?
After next week Im planning to tinker with Fusion, and Im really intrested in software that is lacking on AOS3.x

PDF reader
Internet Browser
Word Processor

Artis Netsurf is rapidly improving, and I suspect any Mac OS 68k browsers is so outdated its no longer useful.....or?
After some searching I found iCab 2.9.9 that supports 68k

Wordprocessors like Final Writer works fine, but until the updated version is released, any suggestions for a more modern version on Mac OS?

TurboCalc works fine, but is really showing its age.

I installed a few mainstream mac apps for fun a couple of years ago.
I think they were mostly the latest 68k versions.
Excel 5, Word 6, Photoshop 4, AppleWorks 5, Painter 4, Stuffit 5.5, Illustrator 7, Pagemaker 6.5. Icab was best at the time. Internet Explorer 4 came for 68k as well.

Edit: Adobe Acrobat exists for 68k, not sure which version though.

About Word let me be a bit against the flow: Word 5.1 is much lighter than word 6 and you can find export/import filters up to word 98 (same as word 2000)
