The Road To OS X #2: Apple Copland and NeXT
Play • 34 min
Apple tried again in 1995 to create a new operating system for the Macintosh, named 'Copland'. The new system aimed to bring new features and a modern core to the Mac platform, but the project was fraught with delays and bloat. Eventually, Apple executives began looking outside the company for the modern operating system it desperately needed. Hosted by Corbin Davenport, guest starring Cody Toombs.
