It won't work in Classic mode.

You need to boot up in OS 9 to make it work and that's not possible on 
all Macs - it's not convenient for most users either.

But it's not worth bothering with as Digidesign are declining to 
support PT free on OS X.

Obviously it has nothing to do with the fact that they are owned by 
Avid and Avid has been peeved by the success of Final Cut Pro. 
Retaliation of that nature would simply look childish, so we can look 
forward to Digidesign bringing out an OS X version of PT free when they 
want to start looking grown up and wholeheartedly behind OS X.

In the meantime, Audacity is quite rightly gaining ground as other apps 
start to fill the vacuum that Digidesign have left. Maybe Apple are 
looking to fill that vacuum too.
