I collect old Macs, and am looking for original copies of Microsoft Word 1.0, Excel 1.0, Aldus Pagemaker, any old original Mac system disks, and an old version of Photoshop.

I'm trying to set up Mac workstations throughout the house, with authentic OS's and applications. My wife has drawn the line on some locations, but I am still hopeful that I can sneak one into the kitchen! Ha!!

Quite willing to pay nothing or pretty close to nothing!!!!!

I am highly interested in Mac OS 1 through 7, Word 1.0, Excel 1.0, MacWrite, MacPaint, etc.

However, I would really like to have the OS 8 disk...I actually have a few systems that use it!!!!

I have a copy of Photoshop 1.0 that was on a website a year or so ago that had old software on it. Not sure how legal it was for them to post it though.

I have lots of old stuff:
Commadore 64
old preformas
RAndoM RAM
software
PCI cards
LC II
Powerbooks
Beige G3

But I am also a packrat, veteran of the platform wars of old...

Now I am on the front lines of the UNIX Revelution! But still a packrat.
