An Exclusive Look at Mac OS 9

Thomas Brand:

By identifying changes in network topography Mac OS 9 could set location specific preferences using AppleScript. A user’s desktop pattern, speaker volume, energy settings and personal preferences could be changed depending on the Macs location. Mac OS X still lacks location awareness to this day, but at least it can network with PC. Mac OS 9 was too good for Windows file sharing.
