Os 3.9

Just wondering if anyone out there is runnin OS 3.9 on a basic 1200?

I should have one soon just standard + 4mb chip ram + ide interface (CD and bigger Hard Drive) and wondering weather that kind of machine would cope ok.

I have read it will run but just don't want it to chug like my pc does with winxp

Cheers for any help.

They say the minimum requirements is 2chip + 6meg fast (8meg total ram), but I've got it to run successfully on 4meg fast. I haven't tried it without fast ram. It would probably run, you would probably just lose a lot of features.

OS 3.9 system requirements

Os 3.9 is just as fast as OS 3.1. There's a lot of little tweaks here and there to the OS, but nothing has been dramatically changed.

replace the 4Mb simm with an 8Mb one and you should be fine, but without at least an 030/50 I would stick to 3.1...

Having upgraded the A4000 from WB3.0 to OS3.9, I'd say it's definately worth it! Buy that mem! will go your face afterwards...
