The 2020 Experience

Recommended Posts

Post here if your Mac thought it was 1920 instead of 2020. :-P

 

My Mac 512K with System 2.0/Finder 4.1 recognizes that it's 2020, but my SE/30 with 7.5.3 thinks it's 1920.

My Macintosh SE with System 6.0.7 correctly recognizes the year as 2020.

 

Interesting that the newer system software has that defect, you'd think it would be the reverse.  :)

The Control Panels were all rewritten (or at least split out) for system 7 or 7.5 so it's not entirely surprising that bugs exist in system 7/8/9 control panels but not 6 ones (and the reverse.)

From my own experiences:

 

System 6 goes to 1920.

System 7 goes to 1920.

I don't have anything with OS 8 up right now (anyone want to recap my PowerBook 190?)

OS 9 does work.

 

The SetDate control panel is a good option for going into 2020 and beyond. I ran it on a 7.1 LC and a 6.0.8 SE and both were able to set 2020.
