Apple II source code available in the Museum of Computer History

The Museum of Computer History in Mountain View California - with Apple's permission - showcases a truly historical piece of technology: scans from the source code for DOS, of Apple II, that takes us back in 1978!


It was the first computer with a floppy drive out of the box, that demanded complicated software in order to work, offering an exceptional design by Steve Wozniak. Written in only 7 weeks, the source code was a project with a short deadline for programmer Paul Laughton who was paid 13000$ from Steve Jobs!


The result is something betweem a file management system and a modern operating system, allowing apps to have access to disc files using BASIC commands.
