An Iconic Anniversary • The Breakroom


You may have had a few Macs connected together, but it was often quicker to copy a bunch of media to an external drive and walk it over to whoever needed the files (we called it sneaker net!). The first reason was practical: you knew that the Klingon ship on your desktop was an external drive and so did the person who was offloading the files. Maybe you even talked about the latest episode of Deep Space Nine as the files copied over (networks weren’t the only thing slower than what we use today). And when going over-the-top isn’t enough, he decided to make icons that are an exact match of the current macOS folders! We were thrilled with this new feature and quickly developed Wallaroo to fill this niche with a constant stream of great looking wallpaper.
