    Does anyone have a pic of the first OS of Mac? I'm curious about Mac OS 1.0, 2.0.1 or whatever was first, to Mac 5.0/5.1. Any info?

    I have my original System disk stored away somewhere in my closet. System 1.0 on a 400K disk. Takes me back a few years!

    I thought it would be kinda cool and retro, but I've used it on my MBP under emulation and it's really pretty far from what I'd call a usable OS. Sure it was pretty advanced for the day, but it's really not as cool as it could be. System 7 is the first 'decent' retro OS IMO...

    No, AU/X was far from the first OS Apple had for Mac. You needed a big "mac II" or bettr to run it. It was not popular and as I remember it was expensive. It's really to bad they did not continue it. We would have has Mac OS X a decade earlier.

    I have two "512K Macs" with software in my attic. These were very close to the first Macs. There is no way those little machines could run UNIX.
