    System 1 had a desk, windows, icons, mouse, menus and scrollbars. The trash dump "Trash" worked as a trash slide, everything disappeared after restarting the computer, you could not work on two applications at the same time, only one, since virtual memory did not exist.
    It was impossible to create a folder inside another folder.
    Then System 1.1 added the dialog box, also the command to clean your Mac and some implements for speed.
  • Mac OS:System 2

    The speed of the Finder was increased by making it twenty percent faster, the return and close commands will be eliminated.

It became popular thanks to its graphic interface based on windows that gives it its name. Among its desktop features were the handling of MS-DOS files, calendar, notepad, calculator and clock.
  • Mac OS :System 3

    Mac OS :System 3
    The Finder was improved, the order of Hierarchical File System was replaced by the new Macintosh File System of Systems 1 and 2.
    The folders were real and folders could be created inside folders. The icons with Zoom were added in the lower right part of the window . In System 3.2, thirty errors were corrected, the calculator was updated, so the numeric keypad on the screen looked like the numeric keypad on the keyboard.
    System 3.3 was added by AppleShare to the old Macintosh file sharer
  • Mac OS : System 4

    Mac OS : System 4
    It was introduced as Macintosh SE and Macintosh II. Multiple monitor support was added to this system. System 4.1 supported 32+ MB disks, multiple Finder was implemented, users could switch between the Finder, which only supported one program and the multiple Finder that supported multiple programs at the same time.
    Now the Finder showed how much memory each program used, also a configurable Control Panel was added. System 4.3 was an updated system, some errors and printer drivers were fixed.
  • Windows 2

    Windows 2
    Two years later (9/12/1987) Microsoft launches Windows 2.0 with desktop icons, extended memory, better graphics and the ability to overlay windows, control the design of the screen and use shortcuts with the keyboard to speed up the work. It was the first Windows platform for today's common applications such as Word or Excel.
  • Mac OS: System 6

    Colors were added, even though the Finder had no color, although the machines were already capable. To the option of "Delete Disk" a button was added to cancel this action, the option to show the version number of the file was also added. A notification was also added to the monitor allowing the programs to notify the user through the menu bar if they needed to connect it. The System 6.0.1-6.0.8, simply added some supports for the new models that they were launching.
  • Mac OS : System 7

    Mac OS : System 7
    It was the great software change for this era, the Finder and the Multiple Finder were eliminated. System 7 already only had the multiple Finder allowing many tasks to be done simultaneously.
    The memory also had a big change to 32b, this allowed the Macs to use more than 8 MB of RAM, in the operating system. Networking by Apple Talk and sharing files by AppleShare was added to the operating system, The QuickTime multimedia software was also worked on this system. These are some improvements.
  • Windows 3

    Windows 3
    The first version that achieved commercial success, with several million sales in the first year. Important changes to the user interface were introduced, in addition to improving the exploitation of the memory management capacity of the processors.

  • Linux: Debian

    Linux: Debian
    Debian is undoubtedly one of the purest distributions in terms of customization. This distribution comes with very few installed packages (the necessary ones, mainly), which allows a greater personalization on the part of the users and a greater performance, nevertheless, it can be something more complicated to use for the users without too much experience.
  • Windows NT

    Windows NT
    NT stands for the code name the project had when it was in the N-Ten development phase. To carry out this development from scratch, IBM was associated with Microsoft. They built a 32-bit multi-tasking, multi-threaded, multi-user, multi-user OS with a hybrid core and a layer of abstraction hardware to facilitate portability between platforms.

  • Linux:Red Flag Linux

    Linux:Red Flag Linux
    The internal structure of Red Flag Linux is very similar to Red Hat Linux, using a similar installer. Visually, the desktop bears a high resemblance to that of Windows XP, ranging from its desktop theme to icons, which the distributor claims to ease the operating system transition.
  • Mac OS 8

    Mac OS 8
    It included another upgrade to the Finder giving the option to control multiple applications at the same time with a better performance of computers with processor. The appearance of the Finder was renewed so that it had a better 3D appearance, it could also be customized.
  • Windows 98

    Windows 98
    A series of improvements to the user interface are introduced through the Windows Desktop Updates package of Internet Explorer 4.

  • Mac OS X 10.0 "Cheetah"

    Mac OS X 10.0 "Cheetah"
    It is based heavily on PowerPC-port OpenStep. That is why Mac OS X inherits the memory and processor of Mach's and the device driver of the interface, BSD's POSIX - UNIX Program protocol that supports and works on the network interface, also some elements of the NeXT's interface. Mac OS X, today this operating system is virtually on all Mac's, and was worked for a decade to get the success it has now.
  • Mac OS X 10.1 "Puma"

    Mac OS 10.1 was released after a year of 10.0, and incorporated better performance especially on Macs G3.
