Join us for the second episode of Macinography, where we look at influential hardware, software, and ephemera of Apple and Apple-related subjects. Our topic this time is the classic Mac OS, specifically System 7. This operating system saw the transition of four CEOs and years of tumult at Apple. For most of the nineties, this was what it meant to be a Mac. What was the goal of System 7 and how did it change our idea of what a Mac was? Listen to find out.
