Don't remember what OS X used to look like back when dinosaurs used to roam the planet and Apple's OS ran only on PowerPC processors? We've mined more than a decade of our own OS X reviews—studiously authored by John Siracusa—for screenshots and other OS X-related memories that trace the development of Apple's desktop OS through the 2000s.

I started into the Mac as Apple made the transition to OS X. I wasn't a Mac user at all - mocked them if anything - but OS X changed it for me. I didn't actually pick up a Mac until we bought an eMac / (photo) in 2003 which likely shipped with Jaguar v10.2.

Jump in the time machine and take a look back at how far OS X has come.
