Snippet: Apple IIGS System 6.0.2 ☇

Shared on July 18, 2015

Bill Martens (via Stephen Hackett):

After 22 years, 2 months, 2 days and 2 hours since System 6.0.1 was released, this is a summary of the visible changes. There have been many bugs fixed and many features added that are not immediately visible–they will enable developers to create better future products. Be sure to also read the Shortcuts file on the SystemTools3 disk for more information.

The first computer I regularly used before getting a Macintosh SE was an Apple IIGS. In fact, the whole reason I got the used SE was that it came with an ImageWriter II that I could use with my IIGS. Although that particular computer has been in storage for about the last 15 years and I haven’t had a chance to test it, I was able to rediscover Eric Shepherd’s Sweet16 and recreate the experience on a MacBook Air. If you don’t know what an Apple IIGS is, I encourage you to familiarize yourself.
