  1. Can we not attempt to be a linkblog as well as a MAKEblog, where the links are things we have no expertise in?

    Case in point: this dude has mislabeled:
    – the Apple IIgs GUI as ‘Macintosh System 5’. Egregiously incompetent.
    – an uglyized version of System 7 (with the DiskDoubler third-party extension and a nasty custom desktop pattern installed) as System 6.
    – System 7.5.3 (with the number visible in the screenshot!) as System 7.0 (this is not a trivial difference from a GUI perspective).

    At the very least, if you can’t evaluate the info at the link properly, please tell us so that you’re not passing along crap information, ‘kay?

    Also, you could post the following link as penance. They tend to be both accurate and a ton more complete. (I have nothing to do with the site, except that I admire the completeness of their resolve to further their obsession.)
