The Evolution of Mac OS

This article and slide shows show iconic parts of Mac OS starting in 1984 through the Mountain Lion announcement.  
The slide show is in 15 parts starting with a slide with screen shots from 1984 and from 2012:

It continues with a shot of the 1984 showing an open window. Then a shot of the Clarius, the dogcow.  Followed by the smiling Mac icon.  One of the slides I wouldn’t have expected is a shot of IE running on a Mac OS 8 screen.  There is also an About This Computer window of Mac OS 9 from 1999.  Of course that is quickly followed by a 2000 screen shot of Mac OS X from when it was unveiled that spring.  The final slide is of a series of Mac OS install CD and DVDs starting with System 7.5 through Snow Leopard. So that would cover all the CD releases since future OS X updates will not be distributed on disk.
