Where to find software online

This is a list of links to sites where software comaptible with a Quadra might be found. I will add to it when I discover new sites, so this list will hopefully grow with time. Most of the software is useable on any Mac (or emulator) running System 7 or Mac OS 8. There are also some System 6 programs that might be usable in System 7 and 8. For use with a Quadra, the software must either be "68k" or "Fat Binary". "68k" indicates that the program is coded for 680x0-processors used in the early Macs. "Fat Binary" means that the program has code for both 680x0 and Power PC processors. "PPC" programs will only run on Macs with a Power PC prosessor.

  • System 7 Today Software Centre - all software is tested on Mac OS 7.6.1 and divided into 68k and PPC categories
  • Abandonware macintosh - french site focused on emulators, but with lots of usable 68k software
  • The Gryphel project - software for 68k Macs
  • Al's older Mac software - some old programs, utilities and games
  • Programming utilities for Mac OS - by Alexander M Kasprzyk
  • Old Apple Software sorted by localisation
