The question it asks is Are today's Macs related to the Mac Daddy?, and it focuses mostly on the hardware. And then,

Quote:
"On the software side, the primary elements left from the original Mac OS come through in the user interface," said Damer. "The single menu stripe--File, Special, etc.--is a vestige of the original limited screen real estate of the 128K Mac."

Damer said there are a few other recognizable holdovers as well. For one, the arrow-cursor remains almost identical today to its origins, and window-handling also has stayed the same. In other words, he said, today, as in 1984, you can only resize a window from the lower right corner.


So now you know. What makes a Mac a Mac is the menu bar and the fact that resizing windows is done from the lower right corner (forget about the maximize/minimize button).

Silly.
