Featured GUIGS/OS 6.0.1
After the birth of Lisa and Macintosh, Apple attempted to create a similar GUI for its older generation of machines. GS/OS 6.01 was the latest operating system for 16-bit Apple IIgs, featuring an impressive colour interface very similar to that of early editions of Mac OS.

Featured iconShredder
Contrary to most other GUIs, OS/2 opted for shredder instead of trash can – this might have been related to the court decision that prohibited Microsoft from using trash can in early editions of Windows. Unfortunately, as with the real-life shredder, this one had no undo feature.
