The eMac

Many apple products have the I in the name like the iPod, iPhone, and iPad but in the early 2000s apple was producing the eMac. By the time that the iMac G4 was the newest iMac apple want to get back into education market but the iMac G4 wasn’t vary good in this market because the LCD screen was too expensive so with the eMac they use a CRT the E also stands for education. The eMac got updated a little but the was disconnected. Thank you for visiting https://eddy4ai.com, Edward.

Linux

We mention Linux a lot but we never mentioned what it is Linux is a Unix based kernel that’s open source but you can just download Linux you have to find a distribution like Ubuntu, centos, redhat, debain, and fedora there pretty different but deep down they’re still Linux. Linux also has desktops like gnome, KDE plasma, and mate but you can still get a good old kernel with some of the core or server distribution and in the desktop open the terminal.

Windows vista development

Windows vista isn’t the best windows release but once you know all the work that went into it, you might think that it should be a amazing release or you might feel bad for the Microsoft developers but we can get into that later now let’s start from the beginning.

The intel transition from apple

In 2004 apple was thinking about switching to a different CPU to build they’re computers because the current CPU(power pc) got to hot that’s why no iBook G5 exist. So in MacWorld 2006 Steve Jobs came up to stage and announced that the new apple computers would run on Intel instead of power pc. That day apple announced the iMac Intel (not G5), the MacBook and MacBook Pro. You should also know that the G3, G4 naming pattern was dropped because the computers no longer run on power pc(power pc G3, G4), the power book was rebranded to the MacBook Pro, and the iBook was rebranded to MacBook.

OS X development

The development of OS X (MacOS 10) was a vary complex and long process that goes all the way back to 1985. In 1984 after the first Macintosh was released Steve Jobs was kicked out of apple, when he was away he created NeXT I made a post about OpenStep but a recap is: NeXT made computers that ran Nextstep, Nextstep is a lot like OS X but in 1988 the only problem is that these computer sold for about as much a Mac Pro with all it’s accessories so NeXT created OpenStep that could run on most computers you could also build on to the OpenStep technology to create your own OS like GNUstep. When apple bought NeXT Steve Jobs became apple’s C.E.O again, Steve Jobs made MacOS 8&9 to keep macOS alive and created Mac OS X Rhapsody DDR 1&2 Rhapsody was built on MacOS 9 and OpenStep and after Rhapsody was created apple made the OS X development preview with DD1-4 DDR 3 was the first development preview to introduce the aqua interface. In Mac world 2000 Steve Jobs announced the release of the OS X public beta for testing, soon after OS X 10.0 Cheetah was released after that apple focused on small improvements to macOS.

Ubuntu 4.10

So few days ago I made a for VMs for Ubuntu 4.10, 5.04, 5.10, 6.04, 6.10. You might ask wait why didn’t install Ubuntu 1.0 well it’s because Ubuntu releases are based on the launch date. Ubuntu 4.10 was released on October 2004. Ubuntu was made to build on Debian in the early releases of Ubuntu didn’t have USB mouse support and in VMs some parts of the screen I wasn’t able to move my mouse in. Ubuntu 4.10 was the first release of Ubuntu and it the gmone 2.0 desktop. Soon I might make more posts about Ubuntu, please come back to eddy4ai.com for more, Thanks, Edward

This picture of the Ubuntu 4.10 login screen is from a VM I have.

OpenStep

When Steve Jobs left apple after the Macintosh was released he created NEXT I’ll probably make a post about it but NEXT made a open source OS that led to the development of of OS X. OpenStep is based NextStep so It’s just a open source NextStep. The first generation of NEXT computers could have color and remember the computers were from 1988, windows at the time had only 8 colors, OpenStep has 32 bit color. OpenStep is like mashup of OS X and windows 3.1 with a dock, program manager, a separate window for a app menu. Please come back to eddy4ai.com for the NEXT post or more, thanks, Edward!
