Macintosh Garden, Celebrating Macintosh Abandonware ➝

Macintosh Garden:

Software featured on the Macintosh Garden have been discontinued by their publishers and are no longer commercially available. The Macintosh Garden aims to preserve these treasures for future generations, providing documentation and downloads of the original files.

I’m planning to setup my old 2008 iMac with Snow Leopard or Mountain Lion (I haven’t decided which yet). I’m going to install a bunch of software on it that runs locally and then disconnect it from the internet entirely. This will provide a more controlled environment for my son when he starts toying with computing in a few years.

He can play some games, use some creative and productivity apps, and my wife and I don’t have to worry about what he’ll find in a web browser.

Macintosh Garden seems like it’ll be an invaluable resource for the software I install.
