Power Macintosh System Overview

Power Macintosh compatibility is not limited just to applications. INITs, CDEVs, drivers, and other Macintosh utility software also work on PowerPCprocessor-based Macintosh systems. So do AppleTalk devices (such as printers), SCSI devices (such as hard drives and scanners), ADBdevices (such as mice, trackballs, and keyboards), and other Macintosh cards and peripherals.
The primary operating system for PowerPC processor based Macintosh computers is System 7. The operating
system has been optimized for the highest performance on the PowerPC processor. This optimization of System 7
benefits applications written for 680x0 systems as well as those developed specifically for PowerPC processor-based systems.
