No, now we get iLife, iChat, Photobooth, Frontrow, DVD player (and an actual DVD drive), iCal, Address book, Safari, Mail and the software you mention.Does anyone have a list of the software Apple included with the original iMac and how this evolved (i.e. from just Bugdom to Bugdom and Nanosaur, dropping the encyclopedia program etc.)? Now all we get is OmniOutliner and ComicLife
I got The Daedalus Encounter and Full Throttle on my Performa 630. Those were good days. I know it's not an iMac but the software bundles were much better.Does anyone have a list of the software Apple included with the original iMac and how this evolved (i.e. from just Bugdom to Bugdom and Nanosaur, dropping the encyclopedia program etc.)?

Oh man, retro! I remember those too! Thinkin' Things 3 had the weird drawing stuff right? And little games? Power Pete was alright, I played a bit of that and I'm not sure I ever delved into the DK Human Body one.Ooooh!! My Power Macintosh 5400/180 (System 7.5.3) came with the following;
Apple Magic Collection* (Lion King Animated Storybook, Pocahontas Animated Storybook, Hunchback of Notre Dam Screensaver)
Sammy's Science House (It was quite fun actually )
Thinkin' Things 3
DK Human Body
and probably a few things more...
* A brief Google search shows me that there are actually different versions of the Apple Magic Collection!
I didn't take it as a complaint but I thought it was worth pointing out some of the ways things improve. I also got Appleworks, which I still use. It would be nice to see a version of that for OSX. However, I mis-posted the units on the VRAM: that should be 6K.Haha yes I know, I'm not complaining, just curious !!
That's a fair point. The new Apple creative apps are a decent introduction and at least people use them creatively.Well yes I agree. I remember being 10 or 11 when I first got the Power Mac 5400/180 and being entranced by Full Throttle and the Grolier Encyclopedia and Thinkin' Things 3 etc.; clearly kids are now equally entranced by iMovie and GarageBand and PhotoBooth, but perhaps with less "educational" value. It's just how times change, though - I mean, I used to copy and paste my History homework from Encarta (though I used the Grolier Encyclopedia usually), now kids just do it off Wikipedia
