I found this thread on a Japanese message board and thought it was pretty interesting. What word or phrase makes you think of classic Macs, or classic Mac OS?

Some examples: Daystar, Ram Doubler, Radius and eWorld.

For me, it would be Extention Manager or System Software.

(and no wise-ass answers like 'reboot', please.)

Now that you mention sounds, the "eep" and "clink-clank" always make me think Mac.

Hmm, also "Dark Castle"

Extension Manager and Conflict Catcher (it functioned more like a "conflict creator"), for me. :eek:

For me it would be Hypercard.

I remember using a Mac Plus SE and I was always intrigued by that program, mysterious as it was.

Conflict Catcher. I used that thing all the time before my Mac OS X days.

Also, the username of the thread starter (5300cs).

Wild Eep

Floating Point Extension

When dropping a control panel or extension onto the System Folder you´d get a message saying "This item belongs in the Extensions Folder. Would you like me to put it there?" Clever.

I'm such a black sheep; I loved At Ease (yeah, yeah, call me a dumb@$$) I also still use MacPaint sometimes.

I have Oscar the Grouch install on my PB100. Very cool :cool:
