Blue Box definition

operating system
The complete implementation of the Mac OS run-time environment on the more modern Rhapsody operating system. Blue Box is not an emulation layer; at any given time it will be based on the same source code and ROM image as the current version of Mac OS and will thus incorporate future Mac OS improvements.
