Just for information, we have some LC580 macs, 5260/100 Power Macs as well
as Imacs at Stowe. We are running appleworks 6.0 on our imacs, and so I
researched to find out what machines could be updated.
Appleworks 6.0 requires OS 8.1 and a min of 32 megs mem. (64+ is
Macintosh LC580 can only handle OS 8.0
Macintosh 5200/75, Macintosh 5260/100 and /200 can handle os 9.0
Macintosh all-in-one G3 (beige) can handle os 10.0 or higher.
The highest free os from apple to download is os 7.5.3
I will probably upgrade my 5200 series and higher computers with more memory
and new OS, when I find the money.
