Mac OS X Server 1.0

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".

Mac OS X Server 1.0 was a preview of what was in store for Mac OS X. It was based on the earlier Rhapsody releases and contained a mix of technologies. The UI style was that of the Mac OS 8 Platinum style, file management took place through the NeXTStep Workspace Manager, and classic Mac OS applications could be ran in the Mac OS 8 "blue box" environment. The display server is still the Display PostScript from NeXTStep, and not the PDF based Quartz that would be introduced with the Aqua UI.
