So, I was browsing a bit on Youtube, when I found this wicked compilation of Mac OSX intro screens:

And lameass one for Mac System 8:

A blink-and-you'll-miss-it one for System 9:

Does anyone else have any intros to share? They can be of any OS...

Wow! Mac OS 8 has a really long and flashy one! Yes, I do like it!

YA RLY! ;006

Hey! I didn't know that Mac OS 8 and 9 had intro screens- I thought only Mac OSX did! o_o

Yup, I recognise them.  I have a Performa 6200 right now, with OS 8.1, 64MB RAM and it's been ethernet'ed so I can surf the web (and download games & apps, bwahahaha!)

Man I used Macs K-12 and never saw an intro, stupid network

I didn't know about ANY intro screens until I set up our iMac... when I switched it on and it greeted me with one, I was like "zomgsqueeeepretty!!!" xD

And Red Machine, that is SO cool that you still use system 8.1 and have it connected to ethernet!

Did you ever see one be started for the first time? That's the only time the intro plays...

stewartsage

Yeah, I went back and thought about it and realized I'd only ever seen one switched on for the first time.  A nice shiny new eMac, before four years were gone it was beaten to pieces.  Literally.

The entire student body of SHS, somehow we're the only district in this part of the state with macs.

I know!  But, due to some utterly poor build quality on the x200 series, intrenet performance is S L O W.  Basically, to cut costs, they put a 64-bit processor on a 32-bit motherboard, with 16-bit RAM and 8-bit drive controllers.  All of this couples up to make probably the slowest computing experience of all time... ;065

I've used the x200 series before, and it's not good. Some of the worst-designed Macs ever!

...And that thing RUNS? ;013

Sounds pretty slipshod, but I bet my HP laptop is slower. Dx

Aurora Borealis

With all the clashing bittages, I'm also surprised that series of computers was able to run at all!

NejinOniwa

The reason they all run is that Jobsy put one of his little pet imps in each one of them.
They do the running.
