The Mac OS X 10.1 Puma is an operating system that was designed, developed, and sold by Apple in 2001 alongside Apple’s personal computers. The system has been released on September 25, 2001, and was available for $129 or was preinstalled on currently sold computers. Puma was also available as a free update for Mac OS X 10.0 users. This software gets the last update (10.1.5) on June 5, 2002, and later has been replaced by a newer version of Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar.
Mac OS X 10.1 Puma was a truly major step compared to 10.0, because Cheetah felt like a beta system, and 10.1 was the first Mac OS X release that could be actually used.
This release brings many improvements like faster application launch time, window resizing, the Dock was a moveable, more customizable interface, hundreds of new drivers, improved CD and DVD burning in Finder as well as in iTunes, better color management system ColorSync 4.0 or enhanced 3D graphics performance.
Today Mac OS X 10.1 Puma is 20 years old!
