The sum of an odd and even number is always odd because there's always one left over. Think of any odd number as being any even number plus one. If you add two even numbers, the answer is always even. If you add an even and an odd (plus one), the answer is always odd.

How do you downgrade from Mac OS X to Mac OS 9?

You cannot without erasing your hard drive and installing Mac OS 9 from scratch. Even then Mac OS 9 may not run on modern Mac hardware because Mac OS 9 needs the ROM chip to boot. Modern Mac OS X hardware uses EFI to boot the system instead of a ROM chip to boot. Mac OS X v10.0 - Mac OS X v10.4 support Mac OS 9 applications and can run them, you just need to install the Mac OS 9 compatibility program which can be found on the Mac OS X Install CD.

The short answer is that a real time OS has a very short (in real-time) and predictable latency response to interrupts and/or task thread switching when compared a standard computer or PC OS.
