    Cool find, I was surprised to still see icons for eMacs, iMac G4, G5, some Power Macs (MDD, Quicksilver, G5) in Mavericks. I'm surprised they are still there, but I'm glad too :) I like the iMac G4 icon, I had a iMac G4 for just over a week, wish I could have another - and I will eventually!

    Finder -> Go -> Go to Folder, then paste: /System/Library/CoreServices/
    A finder window will open, find "CoreTypes.bundle" then right click "Show Package Contents." Now go to Contents/Resources/ and all the icons will be in there.

    They will be .icns files, and use a program such as FastIcns to save them as PNG files for Photoshop or whatever.

    Those icons will always be included with Mac OS X. They're needed for use with 10.5+'s AFP. They're the icons you see in Finder's sidebar.

    Although, maybe it should say:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle
    In finder, then right click "CoreTypes.bundle" then "Show Package Contents"
    Then go to /Contents/Resources

    In some ways, looking through the icons in that folder, it is funny to note the difference between "modern" icons and those which clearly are a legacy from OS8/9 -days. The difference is so apparent in so many ways :)

    RGDS,

    BSOD for Windows machines - I like it!


    Certainly interesting! It was cool going through the icons and seeing old stuff. Maybe if I go to one of my Tiger machines there will be more icons, for maybe the Cube, G3 PowerMac, iMac, who knows!

    Also updated the post with your info. Thanks!

    That's awesome! I had no clue these icons even existed, but now I have a bunch of high quality stock images of all these cool PowerPC macs! Thankyou

    LOL! Is that what that is?

    I've been seeing that for years but I never had it enlarged enough to see the blue screen was actually the BSOD. Most excellent!

    Oh, figured I would say there is a good use for this location. Finding system icons since in El Capitan's About this Mac where a system icon would be in the past is now an OS X logo. I was almost going to use the stock Mac Pro/G5 but my own post helped me :D
