    I suppose I could look it up, but I admit I don't remember what "Platinum" is.

    Ah, such old times. I didn't know what At Ease or PC Exchange were (and still don't remember them after a search on Google); I remembered the others though!

    I still use WindowShade. I really like the whoosh sound. :eek:

    This is the stuff I grew up on in school - all the way from the 3rd grade though my senior year of HS was done on Macs - none of which had OS X. It wasn't out yet.

    Actually, I'm familiar with all of them. (Maybe this is just me showing my age.)

    However, I think you missed some. Allow me to enumerate:

    • ADB
    • IWM / SWIM
    • RAM Resistor Snipping
    • Signatures Inside of Cases
    • SCSI
    • Crystal Raider / Crystal Quest
    • MacMan (both the game and the joystick adapter)
    • MacCharlie
    • Dynabrick / MacLuggable
    • DiskDup+
    • Dark Castle
    • AppleTalk (the hardware, not just the protocol)
    • Bernoulli drives
    • FDHD
    • Timbuktu
    • TOPS network software
    • Font/DA Mover
    • Mode32
    • CMD + OPT + X + O (Remember which Mac this worked on?)
    • Adobe Type Manager

    Polls only allow ten, sadly. :(

    I'm surprised Platinum is the lowest scoring word so far... tied with MultiFinder.

    I remember them all (both lists) except Platinum. WTF was that?

    IIRC it was an Appearance set for OS 9 (and possibly earlier).

    Platinum was also the official name of the case colour from around the time the SE/30 and the IIci were released. A distinctly paler beige, for the more discerning gentleman or lady user... :D
