    Hey people.
    Do any of you know where I can get free (LEGAL) copies of Apple operating systems? I know a person who needs a copy of OS 7 or 8. I went to Apples website, and I couldn't find it. Didn't they used to offer it for free?

    Thanks!

    System 7 is free from Apple (links above)
    OS 8 isn't but may be eventually...

    OS 8 and 9 should be by now....

    Maybe even Rhapsody, or 10.0 orso..... just for those who weren't able to be a Mac enthusiast back then. ;) :)
    Gives them a chance to get into Apple's history.... :cool:

    OS 9 is still used by a lot of people. It isn't something to give out for free. OS 8 isn't being used by anyone, really. A few people, yes. But most of the places that you could make money off of it are gone-- hell, all of them are gone.

    Rhapsody would be neat to have released. I'd install it on my PC! (Yes there was an x86 version...)
