I did some research, this is crappy formatted, and if you want to get more info enter link.
mods are free to format this stuff :P.

System 4.2a4, Finder 6.0a6, MultiFinder 1.0b6:
http://www.mactech.com/articles/mactech ... index.html
Code:
[Apple has indeed sent out System 4.2a4, Finder 6.0a6, and MultiFinder 1.0b6 to developers for testing as of August 27, 1987. This includes developer documentation on Juggler. The new system software is supposed to ship in September (which would be after you read this). And yes, we are interested in background task articles, but only for MultiFinder. Switcher is dead. To get these goodies, contact APDA about the Inside Juggler package. When released, it will be listed as System Software 5.0. -Ed]

System 4.2b:
https://github.com/Kentzo/bzip2-stack/b ... lgary/news - line 404
Code:
Ps. system 4.2b(5?) & Finder 6.0 (Mac 512Ke)


MultiFinder 1.0b6:
https://github.com/Kentzo/bzip2-stack/b ... lgary/news - line 6275
Code:
Yes. I'm using uw4.1 on an SE with System 4.1/Finder 6.0 and a beta version
of MF (1.0b6). (As an aside, we can't get System Tools 5.0 in the UK until
early next year, unless you know different to me !)

http://www.programd.com/26_6817605044063cc1_1.htm
Code:
I'm running Multifinder 1.0b6 on my Mac II, and I've been having
problems with Miniwriter, David Dunham's excellent text file
editor DA.  Basically, it puts up the little running-Mac dialog,
and then, when I click to try to use the DA, the dialog goes away
and takes Miniwriter's window with it.

http://www.programd.com/26_87ead44bb3efae1d_1.htm
Code:
The most recently distributed version is v4.1, but -- as people have
said --  it doesn't work under Multifinder.  I was surprised by this
because it did work under Multifinder 1.0b6, and I was quite
embarrassed to discover that it doesn't work because it lacks a
call to "InitFonts".  This error appears to have been there since
the earliest versions (to my great chagrin).

http://www.programd.com/26_dab2b31a37c95d35_1.htm
Code:
I have MultiFinder 1.0b6 and LSC 2.11 (created with the update package posted
here).

http://www.programd.com/26_b06ee8a88939773d_1.htm
Code:
You need 1Mb and 128K ROMs or later.  More memory will allow you to run
more application simultaneously.  With Multifinder 1.0b6 (the latest so
far), you have about 570K left over when running on a Mac Plus with 1Mb.
The actual amount will depend on the number of fonts/DAs/etc. you have.

Line 404 Haha, the coincidence :)

Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows and after we will have Midori or an another kernel... I'm sure.

So on this new kernel "classic win32 x86 software" can't be used but with some trick, we can use WinRT software on this new kernel ?
