    Curious... have a feeling a lot of people these days don't. Suspicious about all these people saying "Mac Oh Ess Ex" to me instead of "Mac Oh Ess Ten."

    Yeh, i knew OS 9 before it was a 'classic':D

    Many of our new intel recruits probably don't know that Mac OS hasn't always been this pretty!:p

    and, oh, yeah... the correct pronunciation is Mac Osss Exxxx.:cool:

    I knew Mac OS 9 existed long ago, I even remember using the old Apple ][e that my parents still have.

    I used 8.5 too.

    It wasn't that long ago that we went to X.

    Sure do. I'm 21 and my first Mac was at age 4. I can probably remember and use every Mac up to this point. I was the only one in my family who popped in that Mac OS 10.0 CD and learned what the OS was about. Man was it pointless but sure was pretty :).

    I started with 6 at school. I certainly wasn't Mac knowledgeable back then, but I do remember wondering why MultiFinder was missing from one of the machines I used (it turned out that it was running 7).

    Back when I was in 2nd grade which was about 1995-1996, our school still had the old Apple II's for the younger students. I rember the green monotone screen and the big old floppy disks. And I rember they also did NOT have a mouse. lol.
