So I was floating around my application folder today, and realized I still had Max 4 installed. And then I further realized, I kind of miss the max 4 icon.
It's just so... goofy and fun. There's a geeky 1950's-esque scientist (perhaps his name is Max?) ...and a wisk? It makes very little sense to me, but for some reason, those two seemingly unrelated objects read almost perfectly as quintessentially 'Max.'
Anyone know the history of it? And possibly even the splash screens from Max/MSP/Jitter (why the mouse?) I'm feeling nostalgic and never really knew a lot of the gory details of Max's history (just the basics - Miller Puckette at IRCAM, Opcode, the annoyingness of NATO's creator, etc)
