Thanks to Twitter, right here’s an attention-grabbing footnote in computing historical past.
As A/UX growth was winding down, Apple was engaged on one other undertaking referred to as the Macintosh Utility Setting. This was an emulator that allowed customers to run Mac software program beneath Solar’s Solaris or Hewlett Packard’s HP-UX. Quite a lot of A/UX know-how went into the design of this ill-fated product. This web page is a pictorial tribute to the Macintosh Utility Setting, operating beneath Solaris 8 on an Extremely 10 workstation. If you wish to strive the MAE, you’ll want a Solar field operating Solaris 9 or under – The software program doesn’t seem to work beneath Solaris 10.
That is completely fascinating, and I had no thought this existed.
