|3/13/01 - Apple's Software Licensing department send us a letter which states we must stop distributing older Macintosh OS System Software. We have complied and done this.
No older Macintosh System Software is available any more from The Mac 512 or www.mac512.com.
|**** 99% of the System Software available on the net for Older Macs was originally downloaded from this site! We are proud of providing the first versions to System .85, 3.1.1 & 6.0.1 to the Internet to keep your older Macs working!
Apple's Policy for distributing System Software is whomever they let distribute it. This means no individual, user group or company can without their permission. User groups used to be able to distribute System Software.
I think the number of web sites not affiliated with Apple posting older System Software prompted Apple Computer, Inc. to have this stance. They have not provided to me any details. The final outcome is Apple Computer, Inc. deciding to eliminate older System Software from any distribution anywhere.
Unfortunately you the older Mac collector has lost. Thanks to these renegade web sites!
