Operating systems which can be used on a Macintosh

Operating systems which can be used on a Macintosh

(OP)
can anyone give me a list of the operating systems which can be used on an apple mac, ive never used a mac before and need some info for a college project...any help would be appreciated

RE: Operating systems which can be used on a Macintosh

I am unclear what the question is so I am answering on several tangents

MacOS, Apple has versions from 6.08 to 7.5.5 for free. MacOS goes to 9.21 as a Commercial Product

Many Flavors of Unix/linux run on different aged macs  Minux, A/UX. AIX, MacOS 10.1 Yellow Dog Linux  are some I remember

Various emulators exist for Apple II and PC software, both in hardware and software; so many PC OSs are available

I tried to remain child-like, all I acheived was childish.

RE: Operating systems which can be used on a Macintosh

but many pc and apple II run in the curent os so they are not a real os ppc linux free bsd did they have a NeXT version for the mac
