Initial Price: $29.95 (US)
The Mac OS X Public Beta (internally codenamed “Kodiak”) was an early beta version of Apple Computer‘s Mac OS X operating system Cheetah. It was the first public look at the client version of Apple’s long-awaited next generation operating system. It was based on the Developer Preview 4 (DP4) of OS X and was still very buggy. However, it demonstrated the strength of Apple’s new system software like the new Aqua interface or the Quartz drawing engine. It was sold for $29.95 U.S. at the Apple Store and was available in English, German and French. The Public Beta still had the Apple logo in center of the menu bar, but due to many user complaints, Apple moved the Apple logo back to its original place on the left side of the menu.
