Happy Birthday to Mac OS X


And to think, we almost missed it!

Mac OS X is twenty years old today.  On March 24, 2001, Apple Computer began allowing customers to purchase Mac OS X.  The first iteration - code named "Cheetah" - was notable for the "Aqua" interface which featured a water bubble-style design for windows and buttons.

The release and success of Mac OS X was a major step in the transformation of Apple Computer and placed it on the road to becoming one of the most powerful and successful companies in the world.

For more on the anniversary, have a look here.....  Thanks to Theresa Lassek for the reminder.
