Mac OS 8’s purpose on this planet is to help you work more productively, and remove the barriers between you and your full potential. And it does this with performance that’s out of this world. Thanks to the Mac OS 8 improved multi-tasking Finder™ software, you can accomplish several tasks at once, like opening and copying files without any waiting around. But all this power is nothing without organization. That’s why its new unparalleled customization features let you adapt your system to match your individual work style. Spring-open folders, contextual menus and pop-up windows help get you around faster, and are part of a new 3-dimensional look that’s even easier to work with. And Mac OS 8 has integrated Internet capabilities. Netscape Navigator™, the PointCast Network, Internet Explorer and a new Internet Setup Assistant are built right in, making it easier than ever to get on the Net, to email, surf or browse the cosmos*. All this lets you work the way you think, so you can be more efficient. It even includes QuickTime® multimedia technology. And to show that Mac OS 8 comes in peace, it can read Windows files, whether you have the original application or not. It’s also compatible with your existing Mac applications. Mac OS 8 is designed for 68040 and PowerPC™-based systems, and features reliability improvements that’ll have you glad you went with the power of 8.
