No. System 7 is not abandon ware yet, but Apple will still let you download it, that's nice of them, after all - who else is going to want to get a copy of System 7 apart from enthusiasts with vintage Macs

See the links at the bottom of this wikipedia article

System 7 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

If I remember right, then you didn't always have to install from floppys. If you were lucky enough to have another DSCSI based disk you could just put all the disk images in a folder and install them from a portable disk.

You challenge will be to get those disk images from a modern Mac to one that just has floppy disk and 1st gen SCSI as interface options

Yeah, I had a SCSI CD drive a while back, but I got rid of it because I didn't think I would ever need it again. One thing I wish would have kept. That and my Mac IIfx.

I got a IIfx about a year ago for $0. The seller originally wanted $25 (said it worked)...but when I got there it didn't. They said I could just take it since it didn't work. Ended up just needing a PRAM battery.

Pretty good deal for a computer that originally cost $10,000-$12,000!

I have at least 5 SCSI drives sitting around (More at a friends house in a box). Not sure about optical drives. I have a couple of external SCSI CD Burners though that still work.

Nick, great deal on IIFX. Mine has 2 PRAM batteries. I thought I was seeing things at first!

My cat Junior loves my IIFX also!
