In 1984, Apple debuted the operating system that is now known as the “Classic” Mac OS with its release of the original Macintosh System Software. The system, rebranded “Mac OS” in 1996, was preinstalled on every Macintosh until 2002 and offered on Macintosh clones for a short time in the 1990s. Noted for its ease of use, it was also criticised for its lack of modern technologies compared to its competitors.
System 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 use a flat file system named Macintosh File System (MFS). The Finder provides virtual folders that could be used to organize files, but these folders are not visible from any other application and do not actually exist on the disk.
