Apple distributed the OS free to all up to 7.5x. Probably 7.55 is the
highest you should go on a Plus anyway with its limited RAM capabilities,
and if you don't really need OS 7.xx stick with 6.08 which is more spry on a
machine as old and slow as a Plus.

If anyone needs any of the older OS versions I'll be glad to provide you
with disk images on CD if downloading is too much bother. Drop me a line.
