Mac OS X 10.0 Cheetah was the next generation of the Macintosh operating system and the first major update from the classic Mac OS. It contained a brand new code based completely separate from previous Apple operating systems.
Mac OS X introduced the new Aqua user interface and a completely new system of memory management. Cheetah proved to be a rocky start to the Mac OS X line, plagued with missing features and performance issues, although it was praised for still being a good start to an operating system still in its infancy, in terms of completeness and overall operating system stability.
Today Mac OS X 10.0 Cheetah is 21 years old!
