Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I have two old developer builds of Copland laying around. If anybody wants to get their hands on them, I can upload them to the BA server.

Fair warning: you'll need some select legacy Apple hardware to test this out (two machines are necessary for one of the builds), and a reasonable understanding of legacy Mac OS's inner workings. (You can forget about running this under an emulator.)

The point of these offer threads is that some people don't want to take the time to dig out and upload something that no one has any interest in. I know that the interest in Apple software/hardware is limited here, so I wanted to make sure I wasn't wasting time and bandwidth.

Personally, I believe that the interest of Apple / Macintosh products and software is increasing more and more due the fact that the computers run on Intel Core Duo 2 processors and more people are switching simply because they find Vista too hard or slow to use, and the freedom to run both on their computers. In a way, I have to agree with the motion that Vista is a little annoying at times, just like Mac OS X is, but I love that freedom.

Regardless, I'm truly interested in the Copland Developer builds and am glad you took the time to upload them. Thanks!

Ditto... and if anybody has any of Taligent's products (TalOS/TalAE/TalIDE/CommonPoint/Places for Project Teams), or AOCE (Apple Open Collaboration Environment)'s PowerShare server, don't be shy ;)

These are things I've only ever been able to read about, and even if it's a pain (or impossible) to get them running, just having the documents/binaries can be an amazing source of information and fascination for an enthusiast.

I'd be happy about those Coplands. I am not sure if they may be the same I already got on my server, but send them up and we'll see. If not then we'll have more. If it is the same then perhaps you got some extra in yours :P.

Could someone possibly upload screenshots or provide a link to where I could view what was new with Copland from Mac OS 7/8/9? I remember there was a new "Save/Open File" dialog and new themes that later simply became the Platinum theme of Mac OS 9.

Platinum was one of the new themes, which survived with OS 8's Appearance Manager - Copland also included other themes like Hi-Tech and Gizmo (below) that were not shipped with OS 8/9 but there are versions that can be used with these later OSes (here I am running them on OS 9 in SheepShaver) as Appearance Manager can do a lot more than just the Platinum theme that was included:

Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copland_(operating_system) - have a pretty good entry on Copland, including a screenshot of the Open/Save dialog - Copland was much more than new themes and dialogs though, it was meant to be an entirely new OS that replaced the old Classic OS, but it ended up worse than Longhorn and had to be cancelled.
