End of classical Mac OS, and beginning of a new era


In May, 2002, opening WWDC, Steve Jobs has publicly said goodbye to a classical operating system. Those who didn't deal with her, considered her by a shame of Apple, but the world is more difficult than speculative schemes. In 2002 classical Mac OS surpassed Mac OS X almost in all respects.

"Classics" was much more friendly to the user, criticized "ten" for hundreds of shortcomings and mistakes new Mas'i were delivered with both systems, and the new system obviously lost in fight for attention of the user. Mac OS 10.1 was quite viable, but to the users of it spoiled Mas'ovskim there was a little.

Coexistence of two systems could proceed still very long, forcing Apple to spray resources of the company, including unique.

the Decision "to kill" classical system wasn't simple. Opinions in the management of Apple were shared, supporters of a radical gap with the past were in minority, arrangements didn't help, and Steve had to apply "dictatorial" powers. The majority didn't believe in real success "tens", disputes continued for a long time - there were also threats to retire, in protest at the decision, pernicious for the company, but on May 6, 2002, WWDC has begun with a funeral ceremony.

of Video of "funeral ceremony": Mac OS 9 System was published on August 23, 1999. She couldn't brag the forcing-out multitasking, protection of memory, and emergency end of the application program with almost hundred-percent probability brought an operating system to a non-working state. the same Mac OS 7 with a big name was

Actually it. Why she was called by Mac OS 9, it is only possible to guess. Each big announcement (and what can be louder, than a release of the new version of system?) - one more opportunity to declare oneself publicly. Besides, as "modern OS" has been already officially called "ten", it would be not too beautiful and logical to pass "nine".

at the end of 1997 on Apple has been created security service, by efficiency comparable with similar services of the developed states, and information leakages became a rarity. Most likely, Steve had

the serious reasons to call Mac OS 8.7 "nine", but nobody ever discussed them publicly. Called and called. Me it was pleasant to

more, than Puma (Mac OS 10.1), but now to me it was almost necessary to carry out in her all the time. With pride I can report that despite the present of new system, our program managed to bring down it on two-three times a day.

Was obvious that the system desperately needs completion. Jaguar (Mac OS 10.2) the New tens version has been solemnly announced on August 23, 2002. For the first time her code name became official designation of system. The skin of the Jaguar was her logo. I don't know whether has attracted this name of new users, but here Apple because of this name had troubles.

Has turned out that in the United Kingdom the Jaguar trademark belongs to very dear people. Hasn't come to court, the problem was solved routinely, however
