I'm a total Apple addict, as you might tell.

OS X 10.1 Apple Store Demo CD

This is a really neat find. This is the original Mac OS X 10.1 Demo CD Screensaver that Apple ran on the Macs in the Apple Store in 2001. It was still sealed in the wrapper. I felt a little bad opening it, but I just had to run it.

I popped it into my iMac G4 and gave it a spin.

It’s strange how they actually bundled this screensaver into an installer. Apple Store employees actually needed an installer for this? Maybe it checked system requirements or something.

All it basically does is drop the file “Mac OS X.slideSaver” into your /Library/Screen Savers directory.

Here’s just a few snaps.

The screensaver contains 13 slides at 1024x768 that are actually just .jpgs. I cracked the .sliderSaver file open and pulled the images out:

Seeing it run on my iMac makes me fell like I swiped it off the showroom floor. Pretty sweet.
