How the design of macOS has changed since the launch




In September 2000, Apple introduced the first public beta version of Mac OS X. For that time, it was really an advanced operating system, both in design and functionality. It was this period that was the starting point for choosing the direction in which to move Apple. If you have not found those times, we suggest you plunge into the history and see how the design of Apple’s desktop operating system changed over the past 18 years.

Such an opportunity arose thanks to the enthusiast Steven Hackett, who compiled an extensive collection of screenshots of all versions, starting with Mac OS X Public Beta, ending with the current macOS High Sierra . In the near future, the gallery will also be replenished with images of the macOS Mojave. In total, the library has about 1500 images.

For several years, Hackett has run various versions of macOS X on his old computers, without resorting to virtual machines. For example, Mac OS X Public Beta was launched on the original Power Mac G4, when the rest of the operating systems used Mac mini and various models of the MacBook Pro.

The enthusiast named his collection “Aqua Screenshot Library” and published it in his own blog 512pixels. You can learn more about the pictures here .
