    I found this thread on a Japanese message board and thought it was pretty interesting. What word or phrase makes you think of classic Macs, or classic Mac OS?

    Some examples: Daystar, Ram Doubler, Radius and eWorld.

    For me, it would be Extention Manager or System Software.

    (and no wise-ass answers like 'reboot', please.)

    Eep.

    For some reason, the little warning eep sticks in my mind more than anything. :confused:

    Now that you mention sounds, the "eep" and "clink-clank" always make me think Mac.

    Hmm, also "Dark Castle"

    For me it would be Hypercard.

    I remember using a Mac Plus SE and I was always intrigued by that program, mysterious as it was.

    Conflict Catcher. I used that thing all the time before my Mac OS X days.

    Also, the username of the thread starter (5300cs).

    Floating Point Extension

    When dropping a control panel or extension onto the System Folder you´d get a message saying "This item belongs in the Extensions Folder. Would you like me to put it there?" Clever.

    Ahh, yes. The good old rainbow logo. Back in the days of such rulers as Spindler and Sculley. :rolleyes:

    I'm such a black sheep; I loved At Ease (yeah, yeah, call me a dumb@$$) I also still use MacPaint sometimes.

    I have Oscar the Grouch install on my PB100. Very cool :cool:
