  Project MAC - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Project MAC was principally funded by DARPA and the National Science Foundation.
Project MAC's founders -- Fano, Fernando J. Corbato, and Marvin Minsky (with inspiration from former colleague John McCarthy), among others -- envisioned the creation of a "computer utility", which would be as reliable as source of computational power as the electric utility was a source of electrical power.
One of the early focuses of Project MAC would be the development of a successor to CTSS, Multics, which was to be the first high availability computer system, developed as a part of an industry consortium including General Electric and Bell Laboratories.

 Multics Glossary -P-
The system registers a name and password for each person; when a person logs in, he or she specifies a project (possibly by default), and the combination is called a user.
Among the responsibility of the Project Administrator is registering and deregistering users on the project (a user can only log in if he or she has a project to log in to), and creating home directories under the project directory.
MIT Project MAC, suggested by J.C.R. Licklider, was the organization that began the research that led to Multics.

Now, I am hardly the first person to put an ITX board in a Mac case, but I was after something a bit different from all the other ones I've seen.
Getting it home and ripping the guts out the Mac and the monitor showed that (hooray) the tube is almost exactly the same dimensions as the Mac original, and fits perfectly in the original mounting points without any modification.
The Mac designers must have really thought in 3D because all the Mac boards only fit because of the way the heights of the components are distributed.

 project mac
Project MAC was a research project, started at MIT on July 1, 1963 with initial funding from a two-million-dollar DARPA grant.
In the late 1960s, internecine warfare (of an academic sort) broke out between those in the project who desired operating systems that could continue to be customized and tinkered with, and those who desired a stable computing environment so that they could concentrate on their research in other fields of computer science.
This culminated with the secession of Marvin Minsky's artificial intelligence group in 1970, leaving Project MAC to form the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory.

CinePaint currently uses Fink and the XDarwin X server on the Mac, a technology that enables X Windows programs to run on the Mac almost seamlessly.
The Mac's native interface is called Aqua, and unlike X is proprietary to Apple.
That's why it is desirable to have GTK+ run natively on the Mac without X. GTK+OSX was based on the abandoned mac-gtk project, an OS 9 effort that has laid dormant since 2000.
