Mark H. Anbinder writes, "Those of you with an eagle eye may have spotted a hint of an unknown Macintosh after this month's release of System 7.1. The Installer script for 7.1, if you click on the "Customize" button, will offer an option to install system software for "Macintosh IIvi/IIvm/IIvx." Is it the Ghost of Macintosh Future? Nope... apparently Apple planned a IIvm, but has said "This string was included when a Mac IIvm was in planning and was never pulled out." We'll be satisfied if this is the worst "bug" left in System 7.1 following its beta-testing period."
