Mac OS X

Back in the days of Mac OS X 10.2-10.4, I toyed with backporting some of my programming projects, originally developed in Carbon with Project Builder, to MacOS 9, and downloaded MPW (since it was free, and CodeWarrior was not) to do so. The Macintosh Programmer’s Workshop was Apple’s own development environment for developing Mac apps, tracing its lineage from the Lisa Programmer’s Workshop, which was originally the only way to develop Mac apps (yes, in 1984 you could not develop Mac software on the Mac itself).

A follow-up from last week's MPW story.

Great article. It almost makes me want to fire up Basilisk II and dive in.

Almost. Basilisk II has become extraordinarily unstable of late. Is VMac still around?

A visit to google revealed that VMac doesn't seem to be around, but that there is Mini VMac: http://www.gryphel.com/c/minivmac/index.html
