Apple has long been fortunate to have an excited fan base promoting its products and helping lure first-time buyers. But did you know that Apple used to distribute free collateral to help its biggest fans spread the message. That’s what this is: The 1997 MacAdvocate CD-ROM, full of “why Mac?” presentations, free software and games, Apple TV commercials, and more. It came out shortly after Apple acquired NeXT, but before Steve Jobs had really started remaking the company around products like the iMac or iPad ... More recently, poking around my family’s home in Chicago, I found the old-Mac-stuff stash. I booted up my sister’s blue iMac, popped in the CD, and took a bunch of screenshots.Some of this stuff is pretty amazing.(via Cult of Mac)
