Apple II DeskTop gets an update


Well-known member
After 35 years, the Apple II Desktop gets an update from version 1.1 to 1.2 alpha 35. There are a host of new improvements. I installed it on my IIGS and it seems to work well. It should work on the Apple IIe, IIc, and Laser 128 machines as well.

Whoa. That’s very cool.

Henri Lamiraux, one of the co-authors named at the linked page, was my boss at Apple in ‘95-96. By then he was tech lead for the Frameworks team (ODF + MacApp), possibly among other things. I was a lowly intern but thought he was a nice and impressive guy. He had previously co-authored Studio/8 and Studio/32. I had no idea he was (much earlier) involved in MouseDesk.

This is fantastic! Its about time the 8 bit GUI for the Apple II line received some much needed attention.
