On May 5th, 1984, Apple released Macintosh System Software 0.1, an operating system designed and developed alongside the Macintosh computer. This was the first update of the Macintosh System Software, and it was a significant milestone in Apple’s history.
The Macintosh System Software 0.1 was a maintenance release, featuring updates such as a new Mountain scene, an updated About box, and a new Clean Up Command. These new features were designed to improve the overall user experience and make the Macintosh computer more efficient and user-friendly.
However, the Macintosh System Software 0.1 was not the final version of the software. In the coming months, Apple released Macintosh System Software 0.3, which replaced the previous version. Today, Macintosh System Software 0.1 is 39 years old, and it serves as a reminder of the early days of Apple’s Macintosh computers.
