I am not currently a Mac user, but I have been in the past. It always intrigued why they had a little smiley face appear when the machine started up. Regardless, it soon became a recognised ‘feature’ (you got a sad face if something was wrong).
The face itself has a history, progressing from an outline of a Mac Plus with the smiley face inside the screen area, to the current ‘Mac Logo‘.
Alas, the ‘Happy Mac’ is killed by Jaguar.
Yes the new OS no longer features the Happy Mac, watch the legions of Mac fans raise merry hell.
