John Leake of the RetroMacCast has built a functional 1/3 scale model of the original Macintosh. The casing was built out of PVC, while the computer is powered by a Raspberry Pi, and the display is a 3.5-inch LCD monitor. Most impressive is that Leake used the Linux-based Mini vMac emulator to run System 6. Breaking from historical verisimilitude, the mini computer features two USB ports, an HDMI port, and an Ethernet port. Sadly, floppy disks are also not supported. follow link
Open a Finder Window with the App Switcher
If you don't have any Finder windows open and want to switch to the Finder and open a window in one fell swoop, bring up the app switcher with Command-Tab and tab over to the Finder icon. While still holding down Command, press the Option key, and then release the Command key. You're switched to the Finder, with a new default window open for you.
