Apple We all have our most favored machines of yesteryear; in this I assume that most people are like me, anyway. Breaking away from the mundane every-day news of boring (I jest) new technologies such as touchscreens the size of a wall and upcoming operating systems that support graphics cards with 1.5 GB of vRAM, take a walk down memory lane-- or "Neurological Alley" as I like to call it-- and take a look inside, outside, and in all of the nooks and crannies in between the circuits of the Macintosh Plus and its accompanying System 6, fresh from the splendor of 1986.

I'm a big fan of classic MacOS. Someday it would be really great if a group of people wrote an opensource version of Copland that ran on x86.

Something like the Haiku-OS project.

MacOS 6 doesn't have pre-emptive multitasking. Perhaps a solution would be MacOS 6 virtual machines with each app having its instance of MacOS.
