Copland was Apple's failed attempt to modernize the classic Mac OS in the mid 1990s. While parts of it would end up in Mac OS 8, the dream of a modern Mac operating system wouldn't be realized until after Apple bought NeXT.

Copland is a really interesting (and sad) chapter in the Mac's history. Here are some documents I've collected over the years about it.

A digital treasure trove if there ever was one.

OpenDoc sounded so cool but was replaced by the web. They also had no ability to sell it.


Don't forget that it was a resource hog and very late delivering on Windows.
