MacOS X + 5

March 24, 2006 at 7:51 pm | Posted in Macintosh | 2 Comments

Today is the fifth anniversary of the release of MacOS X, and ArsTechnica has a very good retrospective article by John “Spatial Finder” Siracusa. The change has been gradual, but today’s Mac community is very different from the one 15 years ago, when we had Guy Kawasaki, 68040 processors, and BMUG. With the switch to Intel CPUs, running old-school software is no longer supported.

  1. I wouldn’t say Intel-based Macs don’t support running old school software. After all, you can now run Windows on them. 🙂

  2. It’s ironic that in order to run old-school Mac software, you have to run a Mac emulator on top of Windows. Seriously though, I’d rather have VMware running multiple operating systems simultaneously. That would justify getting more than 1Gb memory.
