Older Apple OSes
Authored by: cparker on Sep 26, '03 02:39:39PM

The older Apple choices are not OSes per se, but platforms. I mean there was ProDOS and DOS 3.3. There was probably stuff before DOS 3.3, but thats just where I came in. It never changed (until ProDOS) for the 3-4 years I was using Apples. Wait, I really never used an apple. I had a Franklin Ace 100 and a Laser 128. I would have probably bought a mac clone but I never got a round tuit. Ya know, there are no IIGS options on there...GSOS, I believe...

Good call--I almost forgot about the IIGS. It had an OS more than you can really say the Apple I/II did (not that you couldn't boot into the command line on a //c, but you usually just booted directly into a piece of software), and in functional terms was a real competitor to early Macs (bettered them in many cases, in fact).

I remember reading an article (in Insider, I think) comparing the IIGS to the LC... boy, that seems like a long time ago.

Truth be told, there *was* an Apple DOS 3.1, but it was very short-lived. 3.0 was never really released.

Ah, for the good 'ol days of popping in the "Basics" disk, in order to play Little Brick Out... :-)

See http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_DOS for more information.
