How was macOS created?
Mac OS was initially designed with the intent to replace the classic operating system used in the earlier Macintosh computers first developed in the 1980’s. The main software architect behind Mac OS is Andy Hertzfield, who created much of the original kernel and desktop applications.
Why did Steve Jobs create the Mac?
The Macintosh came with all the features you’d recognise in a computer today. Essentially, Jobs wanted to create a computer that was for anyone – it wasn’t going to be something that just techies could appreciate, it was going to be a mass-market product. Computers were going to become everyday, for everyone.
