Mac OS 9 9.0.4 box (2000)

Mac OS 9 was Apple’s final version of its “Classic” operating system. This iteration, version 9.0.4, was released April 4, 2000, and its changes included “Improved USB and FireWire support and other bug fixes.”

This specific boxed version is a 10-client license and features iTools, Apple’s first suite of online services that would eventually become iCloud.

The box also mentions that Mac OS 9 introduces “more than 50 new features” and includes “nine Internet power tools.” The tools include:

  1. Sherlock 2
  2. Multiple Users
  3. Voiceprint Password
  4. Keychain
  5. Auto Updating
  6. Encryption
  7. File Sharing over the Internet
  8. AppleScript over TCP/IP
  9. Network Browser

Keynote box (2003)

Keynote was announced by Steve Jobs as an app created for him for his world-renowned presentations. (Previously Jobs had used the application Concurrence by Lighthouse Design.)

This is the box version of Keynote 1.0 from 2003. Keynote was sold as a separate application for about two years until it joined Pages as a part of Apple’s iWork suite of software tools.

In my opinion, Keynote has been far superior to PowerPoint and other presentation applications since its release. Keynote used 3D slide transitions and builds that take full advantage of OpenGL, the graphics system that is part of macOS. Keynote has always perfectly handled imported media since it supports all QuickTime formats available in macOS.

I have been a Keynote user since its beta release in 2003 and have seldom used other presentation formats.

iWork ’06 box (2006)

iWork is the name of Apple’s productivity suite of software including Keynote, Pages, and Numbers. The first two versions of iWork did not include a spreadsheet option.

iWork was originally referred to as a replacement to AppleWorks, but iWork has never provided a standalone database app and did not include a standalone drawing app (although its draw features are now similar or better than those provided in the AppleWorks Draw component).

As of 2020, at least ten different versions of iWork have been released.

iWork ’05 (released January 2005) included Keynote 2.0 and Pages 1.0. This version was released on CD-ROM.

iWork ’06 (released January 2006) included Keynote 3.0 and Pages 2.0. This version was released on CD-ROM.

iWork ’08 (released August 2007) included Keynote 4.0 and Pages 3.0, and added Numbers 1.0. This version was released on CD-ROM.

iWork ’09 (released January 2009) included Keynote 5.0 and Pages 4.0, and added Numbers 2.0. This version was released on DVD-ROM.

Beginning in 2010 iWork began to be offered for iPad and was released and updated through the Mac App Store.

This is the original box for iWork ’06.
