Apple hardware priced so high that no one wants to buy it? It's 1983 all over again

You can claim System 7 is many things but preemptive multitasking is not one of them, that was introduced in 8.6.

Memory management was pretty terrible in 7 too, the user had to get info and reserve a fixed block of memory that other apps couldn't use and the app itself couldn't go over.
