The question was "Tried to run an OS9 app on OSX recently?" which - as I
stated - I can do.

But you are right, there are a few specific versions of specific apps that
are OS X only and PPC only, and those won't run natively on an Intel Mac
running Lion or Mountain Lion.  However, they can be run on a PPC emulator
like Sheepshaver or PearPC.
