An Introduction to MAC
Mac is a graphical user interface operating system introduced by the Apple Inc. Apple Inc which is formally known as Apple computer Inc introduced the Mac operating system for their Macintosh line of computer systems. The Macintosh line computers are being popular these days with Mac. The original name the “Mac OS” was the integral and unnamed system software when it was first introduced in 1984 with the original Macintosh, usually Mac is referred to simply as the System operating software.
Features and design of MAC
The Apple Software Inc deliberately sought to minimize by design of the user’s conceptual awareness of the operating system, so all the features available in Mac are designed to meet the user requirement. Mac is also known as user friendly operating system. The designing structure of Mac is awesome. Even the Windows and Linux Os doesn’t looks as good as Mac in comparison to Mac.
The core system of Mac is written in ROM. So generally you must have a computer manufactured by Apple Inc in order to use Mac. Other general computer doesn’t support all the features of Mac os. Mac has upgraded its user’s involvement by minimizing running an installer, or simply replacing system files.

The early versions of the Mac operating systems were compatible only with Motorola 68000-based Macintoshes computers.
