Apple Releases Mac OS Classic, OS X Lists
3:05 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

Following on the heels of the release of Mac OS X Public Beta, Apple has produced two lists of software titles (commercial, shareware and freeware) that are certified to work on this new operating system. While the list of Carbon and Cocoa-ized games for Mac OS X is very short at present, we expect the titles in the Leisure and Entertainment category of Apple's software database to grow rapidly. Here is more information from the press release:

We've just posted the official lists of Mac OS X Classic products and Mac OS
X Optimized products.


Mac OS X Classic products are defined as those products tested by Apple to
meet minimum compatibility standards while operating under the Classic
environment of Mac OS X, now available in Public Beta version. Our newly
posted Mac OS X Classic list currently contains descriptions for over 90
products, with more being added all the time.


Our Mac OS X Optimized list contains information on 70 products written to
take advantage of Mac OS X, now available in Public Beta version. Best of
all, we'll be adding new products to the list on an regular basis.

If you are one of the brave souls giving Mac OS X Public Beta a spin, be sure and check out these lists for links to many great products.
