OS 8 and 9 are what are referred to as "Classic" Mac OS. It's the one
you're familiar with, all GUI, all cooperative-multitasking, no command
prompt. They're about as different as they come.
OS X is Mach with BSD and a Mac-ish GUI on top. I'd suggest that you
should try it. It's actually a reasonably enjoyable experience. It's
more "NeXTstep" than "System".
