Mac In The Day

This is really good Flash simulation of Mac System 7.1 (click the image for the link).

System 7.1

Takes me back to my first Mac, in 1991. Of course, I hadn’t upgraded to System 7 yet; I was still using System 6.0.7, which was lean and fast, even on my 8 MHz Macintosh Classic with 2 MB RAM. And a whopping 40 MB hard drive. Man, I thought that computer rocked. I’d stay up late at night using ResEdit to poke through every file I could get my hands on.

But anyway, the simulation is great. Very realistic. I love the Netscape icon on the desktop. I wonder if the simulated extensions folder has a simulated copy of Netscape Defrost in there?
