- Ease of use A big improvement on OS 8.0/8.1.
- Speed Now that it was native PPC code, every PPC computer ran faster with it.
- Configurability More flexible than OS 8.1 ever was.
- Ecosystem (apps, drivers, etc.) Only thing it lacked was support for the original iTunes.
- Openness It's pre-UNIX Mac OS.
8.5 and 8.6, pretty much the best of the pre-OS X Mac OS versions. Very few drawbacks, and almost any Classic software runs on these versions of OS X. 8.6 is more stable.
