Anyone heard of the 1981 System Software beta?

Post by xdman6000 »

Ok, so i was searching around betawiki.net and i found something about a late 1981 build of the Macintosh System Software. Does anyone here know about the beta and have any of you used it before?

Hi There! ^_^

There are few "beta" or better PRE-releases of the first Systems that was distributed true 3.5' floppies as "FOR INTERNAL USE ONLY" that included also TEST for the floppy drive, a good idea as the only way to let the fwhole hardware active was just true the SONY floppy drives.. and there is even the so called Twiggy pre-release delivered into a 5.25'' floppy. All those Pre-Release are available in the Net, just search for system pre-realese and or Twiggie and you will learn more about them alone.

So to my point of view these are the earlier versions and are dated by 1983. But if someone can contribute with a 1981 release i'm surely curious to see what we are talking about... ^_^
