    Yup. When I get my G5, I'm deleting the OS X partition from my G4 and
    it'll be OS 9 only.

    Nope. The 1.25Ghz machines which supported 9 have existed for a
    while. Apple appears to have discontinued the non-9 G4s and left the
    G4 in the legacy systems and the PowerBooks. (note that the 15"
    powerbook still boots 9, reportedly, though it's not listed as a
    feature)

    Do you find it interesting that those models that can boot MacOS 9 have
    had a longer lifespan than those that could not?

    It's a marketing decision, nothing more. If OS 9 boot was really that
    important, Apple would have speed-bumped the OS 9 machines instead of
    simply discontinuing the top-end G4 in favor of the G5.
