MacOS X was Apple's replacement for their classic MacOS. MacOS X is based on NeXTSTEP, a Unix-based OS. The first consumer release also featured a new user interface appearance called "Aqua".

An early Mac OS X preview release. DR2 was the last NEXTSTEP/Mac OS X to run on Intel until the Intel transition in 2006.

Installation instructions

Emulation notes: The x86 version of Apple Rhapsody is known to work in VMWare, and VirtualPC. It does not work well in VirtualBox. On real hardware, these versions have very limited hard drive controller, video, and sound support.

The PPC version is only known to work on specific models of PowerPC Macintosh computers. There are no known emulators that will run Apple Rhapsody for PPC.
