If you’re a heavy and detailed Mac user, you’ll probably also notice how certain design principles are retained, as well as obvious differences and evolution to macOS Ventura
Traveling back in time through Apple’s computer operating systems seems like a proliferating offering these days. Also this year, developer Mihai Parparita presented two versions, one for System 7 and one for Mac OS 8that run on any machine, whether it’s a Mac M1, Mac Intel or PC.
Both emulators include older versions of Acrobat Reader, Microsoft Word, Nisus Writer, Adobe Photoshop, KidPix, MacPaint and more. Classic Mac games included like Glider, Lemmings, and the Marathon series, and if you really want to get nostalgic, both emulators come with HyperCard.
Macs have had their ups and downs to eventually become the most popular and sought after computers today. And while each generation demonstrates technical and design evolution, nothing compares to living the experience available with just a few clicks.
