Twenty Years Ago, Steve Jobs Held a Funeral for Mac OS 9

At WWDC in May 2002, Apple said goodbye to the classic Mac OS in a weird and wonderful way:

Philip Michaels wrote about it Macworld:

Steve Jobs wore black Monday, and not just because that’s the Apple CEO’s usual sartorial color of choice. Instead, Jobs donned his trademark black mock turtleneck to preside over a funeral for Mac OS 9.

So as a coffin appeared on the San Jose Convention Center stage and Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor echoed through the crowded exhibit hall, Jobs kicked off Apple’s annual developers conference by laying to rest OS 9, eulogizing the classic Mac OS as “a friend to us… always at our beck and call, except when he forgot who he was and needed to be restarted.”

I love how much fun this is, but I’m sure it wasn’t a joyous occasion if your workflows were still based on OS 9.
