OK, so last week, I asked you all what your favorite retrocomputing (20+ year old) platforms are.

Looks like the ones that stand out (more than one person into them) are the classic Mac OS (three people), Palm OS (two people), and Amiga (two people) - there's some downright obscure stuff in here.

So, here's the deal. The reason why I asked is, I find the aesthetic of diskmags, complete with the whole thing of getting a disk in the mail, pretty neat, and was wondering what platform would be best.

Clearly, that'd be Mac OS.

Since I asked this, though, I learned of a project to do a HyperCard zine: crime.team/~hypercard/

So I guess I'll just point people to that? I don't want to step on anyone's toes (and I'm not able to do anything for Amiga, and a Palm OS diskmag doesn't make sense).


@bhtooefr this makes me wonder if anyone has done a usb thumbmag.

@phooky Although not based on original content, and on a 1 TB HDD instead of a thumb drive, there is El Paquete Semenal, which is a weekly HDDmag in Cuba.
