Ah... I'm glad they included the Alto in with the crowd. For some reason, many people overlook this glorious little complexity of a machine.

PS: If anyone happens to have an Alto or variants, I can has? =D

It's amazing how quickly these transitions occur. Especially the Windows 3.1 to Windows 95 jump, and the System 8 to Mac OS X transition. The tech jumped so much.

…which looked exactly the same as OS 8. That's why it was absent from this list.

I'm assuming Hara Taiki was talking about the visual changes between OS 8 and OS X. There were no visual changes between OS 8 and 9. So that point is irrelevant.

Er.. well... between Mac OS 8 and 9, quite a few things changed (visually).

Control Strip added.
Changed to a new themeset called Platinum.

Not worth a mention though.

Well, what I meant was the huge jump between OS8 and Mac OS X. There are huge differences.

Indeed. Apart from the Apple keyboards, this was the only way to control your volume (unless you obtained a menu bar item).
