    Back in the days of mac os 9 and 8, I recall using a multiple user type of software called ______.

    Can anyone help me find out what it was called? I remember the little "people" icons had round heads with a rectangular body.

    Also, I tired searching for this on the forums already as im sure it has been posted, but because I don't know the name, no luck.

    Any help would be great!

    I will try to be a little more descriptive.

    The interface resembled large folders, like the ones on the finder. They were pinkish and tan-ish.

    Also, there were buttons for each application on the folders. These buttons were square. Hope this helps in finding out the name.

    Also I believe that its name starts with a 'P'

    Thats it! Thank you greatly!

    I don't know why I was thinking it started with a 'P'. Now that I know the name, I feel like I should have known!

    Maybe you were thinking Performa - Apple's line of Macintosh that had AtEase preinstalled.

    Good Call! You are right. I remember AtEase being used on my Performa 6400.
