Software Available - Mostly for Mac


I’m new here; this is my first post. When my dad passed away, he had a lot of computer equipment. I’ve gone through the boxes and found the software listed below. I’m wondering if there is any kind of market for this - or maybe even somewhere to donate it (a museum or school)? My dad was a teacher and so supporting education with this is something I’d be interested in doing. Thanks in advance for your feedback. - Liz

Welcome, @Liz77, and sorry to hear of your loss. Yes, there’s a market for this kind of thing, generally. It’s difficult to know, without being an expert, whether anything is especially rare and valuable. The older the better, certainly.

Here in the UK, one of the museums does take donations and sells whatever they don’t need for their collection - a significant source of revenue, I think. However, it’s quite a lot of work to sell things individually - it’s possible it’s not worth the effort, whether for you or a museum, so be prepared.

I think ebay is your best bet if you don’t have a local museum. I don’t think schools are likely to be interested, to be honest, but you could perhaps donate from any funds you manage to raise.


Thank you, Ed! I appreciate your feedback on this.

Also worth checking if there are local Mac Users clubs / associations. I know a hardcore Apple believer who probably has every model of Mac since Apple II in his closets, and a few more closets for the software.
