Dear Group;

One of my coworkers is a MAC person ( say a prayer for him) and he is in
desperate need of a copy of OS 8.5.

Does anyone here know where to get a copy or perhaps one they could
sell?  Thaks in Advance and very best regards,

MArtin

I'm not a MAC user although the new $1800 IMac w/Superdrive is tempting me
to get one to dedicate to multimedia editing.

I heard somewhere that Apple is giving free copies of older versions of the
OS to anyone who buys a Mac that comes with only OS-X. The reason for this
was that a lot of MAC apps either aren't available or, don't work well with
the newer OS's. So, I suggest your co-worker contact Apple directly to see
if they can help.

Paul,

Indeed, Apple does give out free copies of MacOS up to System 7.5.3.
Anything above that is not free.
I do have a set of disks for the 7.5.3, if the guy wants them.

I have a copy of Mac OS 8.5, Italian version. As it has been said,
after installation it must be updated to 8.6 because of some major
bugs.

At
ftp://ftp.apple.com/Apple_Support_Area/Apple_Software_Updates/English-International/Macintosh/System/

you can find all of the OS versions that Apple allows to download.

If you think I could be of any help, let me know.

Best regards
Leonardo Perretti,  Italy
