MacPaint and QuickDraw Source Code… this is rad –
The Apple Macintosh combined brilliant design in hardware and in software. The drawing program MacPaint, which was released with the computer in January of 1984, was an example of that brilliance both in what it did, and in how it was implemented.
For those who want to see how it worked “under the hood”, we are pleased, with the permission of Apple Inc., to make available the original program source code of MacPaint and the underlying QuickDraw graphics library.
Maybe we’ll see more of this…
- SONY – how about donating the source and schematics of the (now discontinued) QRIO humanoid project to a museum? QRIO photos here.
- IBM – how about donating the source and the hardware of DEEP BLUE the chess computer to a museum?
Post up in the comments if you can think of other worthy donations from the milestones of technology that should be shared and also in a museum.
