MacOS X 10.04 Revisited

For fun, I’m restoring [the new Mac](http://houseofwarwick.com/?p=61) using the Software Restore discs and that means MacOS X 10.0.4.  It’s been several years since I used a pre-Jaguar MacOS and I’m wondering if it’s as bad as I remember.  This machine would have been a mid-range Mac at the time and should run it well especially taking in to account the gigabyte of RAM on board.

I’ll post some screenshots when I get things running.  After this, I’ll go to Jaguar (10.2) and Panther (10.3) and finally Tiger (10.4).

PS:  If you’re a MacOS developer reading this, what’s a good way to set up the machine to boot multiple MacOS versions?  This machine will boot all MacOS versions from 9 to 10.4 so I’m thinking it’s *perfect* for dev work.
