Too new!  This past week, I used a beige G3 to recover a pile of 800K
Mac floppies.  The only one I couldn't read turned out to be a PC
formatted 720K disk.

After struggling with trying to find a good ftp facility for OS 9, I
stuffit-ed the disks up and transfered them to a USB flash drive and
sneakernet-ed it over to the Linux box.
