I really do dislike it. It’s so annoying when it opens up an OS9 application.. Any way to delete it?

AWWW,Classic had better Apps than OSX did in the early, even better than some current OSX Apps, but as I recall there's a classic Pref Pane to set some things, & if you want to get radical a System Folder OS9 or such,

Hmmm, why not get rid of your OS9 Apps if you don't want Classic opening?

You could delete it booted from another drive.

I think you can stop it from auto-opening in the Classic control panel... er system preference.

But you may find yourself needing Classic at some point when the OS X application you need simply doesn't exist in Tiger compatible form, or at least a form you can access now.

Hm. I don’t even use OS 9 apps. The weird thing is that Microsoft Office would open up in OS 9 which was very annoying.

If it opens classic, you don't have an OS X native version of the program. The program won't function without Classic installed. Instead of opening classic it'll just fail to open. As I recall Office v.X had some parts still running in Classic.
