A set of kexties native to MacOS X 10.3.x that don't play nicely with the TFT display on my WallStreet PowerBook. Panther (10.3) wasn't intended to support this machine at all, I XPostFacto'd Panther onto it and discovered purple panther syndrom (http://forum.macsales.com/viewtopic.php?t=714&highlight=purple+panther), as did most other XPF / WallStreeters.

Every updater would obligingly drop new copies and I'd have to root them out and disable them, so I made a folder with aliases to the suckers. At the root because I log in as root to evict the evil little kexties.

OS X public beta expired early 2001 I believe so I doubt it will work anymore.

It works fine. You just have to set your clock to 2000. And disconnect the network connection on boot. (It auto-syncs the clock on boot, even if you have network time sync off, so if you have it plugged in to the network, it will sync the time, and complain that the beta has expired.)

I'm running it happily on an original iMac. (The Apple in the center of the menu bar is a little disconcerting...)

What *I* really want, though, is OS X Server 1.x (The Mach/BSD core OS that still had the OS-9 look to it. Before Aqua. Before it was OS X 10.x)

For that matter, I'd also like to get my hands on A/UX for my old Workgroup Server...

Nitpick time... Before 7.6, it was 'System x', not 'OS x' So it would be 'System 7.0', not 'OS 7.0'. (Although the 7.5.1 and above bootup screen said 'MacOS', it was still officially 'System'.) And before System 5, there was no overarching 'System' number, you referred to it by the individual version numbers of the System file and the Finder file. Only after Apple started calling System 4.2, Finder 6.0 by the combined term 'System 5.0', did people back-number the previous releases.

Very cool thread! I would also love to get my hands on some older versions of OS X (and older) and get another Mac old enough to run 'em again at some point. When I had my Lombard, I tried to get Public Beta, but ended up losing the auction on eBay.

Yeah, I still have a ton of fun working on my Mac OS X Server 1.2 system. Having a couple monitors on it and a lot of apps helps too.

I came across Rhapsody for Mac and x86 a long, long time ago online. Needless to say I eventually burned them to discs. I tried to boot it up on a Mac 7500 but got some kind of error. It said I couldn't install it because there was a later operating system already installed, but no OS was installed on the machine so I gave up.

Oh well...and the x86 version never worked, I couldn't even extract the file. I also have a 8.2 beta disk image from an old Mac I bought haha. I'd love to get my hands on Mac OS X Public Beta...I think I had a burned copy but, that froze my iMac on startup :p

One thing I'd really like to have for entertainment value is an x86 Intel verison of Rhapsody/OS X Server so I could run it on a PC. There are a few copies floating around here and there but it is probably a PITA to get software for it.

For the record, I loved System 7.1. And I was reluctant to get rid of OS 9 on my old iMac. The Classic OS was good. Especially if you compare System 7 to it's Windows counterpart - 3.1 looks pretty ugly.

One thing I'd really like to have for entertainment value is an x86 Intel verison of Rhapsody/OS X Server so I could run it on a PC. There are a few copies floating around here and there but it is probably a PITA to get software for it.While not as plentiful as the software for the PowerPC version of Rhapsody, there is software out there for the Intel version.

For a long time my only Rhapsody system was my ThinkPad, and it is still a great system!

I tried to outline what someone would need to get a Rhapsody for Intel system usable for most common tasks on my Rhapsody Resource Page... the best place to start would be the "Rhapsody 5.1 for Intel, Getting Started" (http://www.rhapsodyos.org/misc/dr2_start/dr2_start_1.html) page. It covers a number of important aspects of getting the system to a functional state for the average user (of course, there is no such thing as an average user of Rhapsody :D ).

After that I would suggest looking at the "Applications for Rhapsody" (http://www.rhapsodyos.org/software/rhapsody_apps_01/apps_1.html) page to see if there is anything available there that would cover the tasks you might use a Rhapsody system for. Some of the links are broken as I recall, but I think I can still find any of the software listed on this page.

For example, if I spent more time writing more detailed documents (than TextEdit (http://www.rhapsodyos.org/software/textedit/textedit_1.html) could handle, which is pretty much what I use in OPENSTEP, Rhapsody and Mac OS X for word processing) I would consider getting WriteUp and maybe PasteUp. As it stands most of my page layout, illustration and web design needs are covered with Create 5.1 (http://www.rhapsodyos.org/misc/create_test/create_test_1.html) (which I have a license for and I put up a copy of the Create 5 online manual on the site here (http://www.rhapsodyos.org/software/create_manual/create_manual_1.html)).

Similarly, I'm able to cover my image editing needs with TIFFany3, PixelNhance (http://www.rhapsodyos.org/software/pixelnhance/pnh_1.html) and CuttingRoom.

Plus I've been very happy with PDFView, which had more features than the version of Acrobat Reader Adobe was giving away back then. I cover the PDF stuff on this page (http://www.rhapsodyos.org/software/pdf_solutions/pdf_solutions_1.html).

I even cover how I've used Rhapsody to create all of the pages on RhapsodyOS.org on this page (http://www.rhapsodyos.org/software/web_page/web_page_1.html). Originally this was to answer the question I get asked quite a bit... "What can you do in Rhapsody?" These days I spend a lot of time in Rhapsody because I like the tools I have to work with.


I would guess that the biggest thing would be getting used to the system... which was it's major hurdle originally. But these days most anyone who is pretty good at working with Mac OS X shouldn't have too many problems with Rhapsody. Specially if you have the software resources to make the system usable for your needs.



ehurtley, you can find OmniWeb 4.2 and any of Omni Group software for Mac OS X v10.1 here (ftp://ftp.omnigroup.com/pub/software/Archive/MacOSX/10.1/).

Mac OS X Server 1.0 was such a beautiful new Mac experience from the worsening Mac OS 8 and 9.

Steve Jobs was back.... and so was his OS ;)

What a step that was!

And.... we got them gradually with the DP1 - DP4 of Mac OS X... gr8 times.

Wow...I remember those days. OS X has come a long way since the Public Beta. That was a truly horrendous operating system. Although at the time, I thought it had great potential. And of course, as we all know, it's grown to become the best operating system in the world. :)

After using Jaguar for a few days, (out of curiosity, I installed it from my Power Mac's Software Restore discs) I can definitely say that Tiger is a HUGE improvement over the previous versions of OS X, including Panther. It runs way faster and has way less bugs. I wonder why Apple never fixed the bug in the Panther finder where icons would change around after about a day of uptime? (example: a QuickTime movie would have a Real Player icon, etc.)

Thank you Apple, for creating OS X. Had it not been for OSX I would not have switched when I did. I couldn't stand the look of OS 9, it looked so bland and just not as inviting as OS X. There have been many a-switcher because of OS X, and let's hope it keeps going! :)

If you're interested in what pre-OS 7 Mac looked like, try here (http://www.macos.utah.edu/Documentation/MacOSXClasses/macosxone/macintosh.html) (warning: seriously oldschool stuff ahead). :)

Gosh! Hardly changed have they ;)

I imagine in 2010 we'll be ragging on Tiger for it's ugly GUI and sluggishness.

How the times keep changing.

I have to say, Tiger still looks quite alright to me.

Agreed. And in many situations it was more responsive than Snow Leopard.

Get outta here '09, this is nostalgia.

BTW, get it right. It's a 5-year old thread.

This is from an install on a TiBook 500mhz lol its pretty snappy with 512 ram!

This is what Mac OS X looked like at the time when windows xp came out with its ugly kiddy fisher price theme! I can't believe how people will accept stuff like that! It just shows they'll take anything

Didn't have to accept it! I still use XP at work, I use the "Windows Classic" theme with a "Brick" color scheme. Nice comforting earth tones. Alas, it's no longer available in Vista/Windows 7. Those are the ones that force Fisher Price.

Yeah but Apple really hit the mark with Aqua! I got my first Mac with 10.3.4 on it and the aqua was really toned down :( I always wanted to live up the OS's from early 10 so I got a TiBook and installed 10.1 on it lol then upped to 10.2.8 :) im surfing on it the now its really sooo gorgeous!

I did use shapeshifter on my 10.3 and 10.4 to get the jag theme back but it doesn't seem to support intel 10.6:confused:

I do like and miss two things from that era...the simpler Dock (the whole 3D thing just doesn't work for me, especially since the icons are from a different perspective) and the very crisp shadows on the menu bar text. I use the alternate Dock hack (I forget what it's called exactly...uses the Terminal) to get the flat one like the vertical options, but still nice to look back in the past.

Kinda funny for all the people in this thread ripping on Mac OS 8/9 - Leopard and Snow Leopard seem to be moving more in that grey, understated direction...
