Technical Details

OSX takes its roots from Steve Jobs' company NeXT, which created the core of OSX, NeXTSTEP, in 1989. After Apple's buyout of NeXT in 1996, Jobs returned to the company as CEO and eventually shaped their new OS, OSX. The Unix basis makes the OS very stable and upgrades easy. Compared to OS9, the interface recieved significant visual upgrades, and additional bundled software (such as an onboard coding application) were included, along with little features such as spelling and grammar checkers across the board. Since the initial release, there have been minor upgrades with each release, but backwards compatibility does not seem to be a priority, meaning that though most versions use Powermac PCs, upgrading an older Powermac to the current standards can be difficult if at all possible.
