Apple Operating Systems

I felt like pulling out my emulator collection this evening, so then I thought I'd see how many Apple OS's I could jam onto my iMac 27" screen at once. The answer is quite a lot, but fewer than I'd hoped—I may have to re-do the challenge including my second monitor.

Anyway, for your enjoyment, here it is. Click to expand:

The emulated systems are, left to right, top to bottom:

  1. Macintosh System 1.1 (showing the early Control Panel)
  2. Macintosh System 2.0.1 (running MacPaint)
  3. Macintosh System 3.3.0 (running the Scrapbook Desk Accessory)
  4. Macintosh System 6.0.0 (showing the newer Control Panel)
  5. Macintosh System 8.5 (running CyberDog)
  6. Apple 1 with a simple Hello World program entered into the WOZ Monitor
  7. Dos 3.3 (running Beagle Bros Apple Mechanic)
  8. UCSD Pascal OS
  9. Prodos 1.1
  10. Apple /// SOS
  11. The Lisa Office System (running LisaCalc)
  12. Newton OS (running on an eMate 300)
  13. NextStep 3.3 (running - not strictly an Apple OS I guess)

Swipe Conference—apparently quite successful!

Hi all. I can't believe I haven't posted a blog post in six months. That's just embarrassing! I've been a little busy, not least with Swipe Conference. If you missed it, Swipe Conference ran ran last month in Melbourne (Australia, not Florida ;) packed full of awesome talks about iOS and Mac software development, design and user experience. Thanks to all our amazing speakers and delegates who made it such an enjoyable time.

Congratulations again to our Swipe Award winners: Best iPhone Application, AFL Aussie Rules Live 2011 from SportsMate Mobile; Best iPad Application, The SMH for iPad and The Age for iPad from Fairfax Digital; and Best Mac Application, Ortelius from Mapdiva


We will progressively put some of the video footage from Swipe online thanks to our friends at Eventer :

Finally, co-organisers Sean, Jake and myself would like to express our sadness at the passing of Steve Jobs. He has helped shape our lives for the better. Hopefully we can continue to give others the joy and excitement that his life has brought us.
