You read that title right, our favorite OS just turned 7 over this weekend. Mac OS X 10.0 Cheetah was released on March 21st way back in 2001, and even though it was extremely buggy and slow, we still use it's release date as the official release date of Mac OS X. There have been 6 (or 7 if you include the Public Beta, which I guess we shouldn't because it isn't September 13th) versions of Mac OS X starting with Cheetah going all the way to Leopard. What was your first version of Mac OS X (I'll guess Tiger 10.4.3 :( )?

Here are all the versions complete with code names, release dates, and numbers.
* Mac OS X Public Beta (September 13, 2000)
* Mac OS X 10.0 Cheetah (March 21, 2001)
* Mac OS X 10.1 Puma (September 25, 2001)
* Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar (August 23, 2002)
* Mac OS X 10.3 Panther (October 24, 2003)
* Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger (April 29, 2005)
* Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard (October 26, 2007)

Upgraded my iMac G3 from 9.1 to 10.1 sometime in 2003. After realizing that 10.1 was no longer useful, I bought a copy of 10.2. 10.2 could run bittorrent. Sadly, that was the last copy of Mac OS that I paid for up until I bought my mini.

My first experience with Mac OS X was sometime in 2000 when I signed up for the AppleSeed program to beta test this new Unix-based system known then by the non-cat name "kodiak" and was more like NeXTstep than a Mac OS. It didn't even have an Apple menu, though it did have an Apple icon in the middle of the menu bar.

I hated the whole thing.

Times they sure did change, and after a few years of polishing - the best parts of NeXT and Apple became what we now love about Mac OS X.

But I joined the Mac camp around System 7.5 at school and finally gave up on my PeeCee around the time OS 9 was released. That's when I bought my first Mac. A 500MHz Pismo PowerBook G3.

Mine was 10.4. At the eMac's in school. But really, 10.5.1. That's what came with my MacBook. I attempted a Hack install, epic phailure.

Used the first iMacs when my school got them and hated them. Opened my mind dome years later when my mate got a PPC Mac Mini and googled until i found Pear PC! It was slow as hell but still better than windows.
