Look how far Logos has come in such a short time.  Here are some old 2.0 screenshots.  The fact that I remember these so well is scary Surprise

Not to misdirect the this thread from the topic, but are there any posts in the forum or elsewhere that have screen shots of the Mac version of Logos 4? I thought I had seen something several weeks ago comparing the Mac and Windows colors and/or layout, but I could not find it again. Any pointers would be appreciated. Thanks!

 

***  Update: I did find some Logos 4 Mac screenshots.

I remember too, although I came in around the end of that era. I discovered Logos just before Series X came out. But ya know, for the time it was a pretty awesome product.

Kind of looks like the current e-Sword. Ouch.

what's interesting is that to this uninformed bible software user, it resembles another very famous piece of bible software doesn't it?

The article that those screenshots came from was written in 1996 by Harry Hahne, who is still here on the forums with us.

Yes, in the Mac forum I usually post some screenshots with every Alpha release.

Never mind 2.0, I remember 1.6! One thing which that could do, which more recent versions don't - it integrated automatically and seamlessly to provide scripture texts within 'WorshipMaster', the Church of England's then-current liturgy planning software.

If I could get Logos 4 and Visual Liturgy Live to do that I'd be happy...

It doesn't take much.

Do you still have your 5.25" floppies?  I would but years ago my "stuff" started quietly disappearing. My wife claims she didn't have anything to do with it.

Back in 1993/4 I, too, used Logos 1.6 (3.5" floppies) and I bought the NA26 & BHS add-on diskettes. But it could do something that has since "vanished". It came with a special macro which I could use in Lotus AmiPro 3, my wordprocessor, to copy Bible verses into my text without first having Logos open. That was so handy. There was no activation and the registration card was sent by post to give you one year of free support. (Of course, hardly anyone even had a dial-up modem then and online meant Bulletin Boards and the Internet was a world of text not multi-media.)

1996 was the launch of Logos 2. As I write I can look over to a shelf in my bookcase which has Logos 2.0 complete with two CDs and Installation Diskette. The minimum system requirements were Windows 3.1 or Windows 95, running on a 386-PC with a minimum of 4MB RAM. It was resold here in the UK by Hodder & Stoughton with a VHS Instructional Video. The outside of the substantial box says, "Logos Bible Software 2.0 has it all!"

We have come a long way with Logos!

Ahh, Ami Pro.  It sure beat Word back then.  Nice little program.  But I didn't know Logos back then.

Thanks for the memories!  I still have it all, except my boxes are folded up flat inside a big gallon sized baggie with each additional piece of software I have purchased through the years (actually it is several baggies)!  It used to take a day or two to load everything whenever I changed computers.  And yes, Lotus Suite and copying Bible verses that way is also a sweet memory!

I am so thankful God directed me to Logos software.  It was my very first (and only )Bible study software.  I've hung around all these years and love seeing what it has become!

A former elder in my church gave me a copy along with the KJV free unlock that he got from a bargan bin some years ago. Remember how long the indexing took...Like 30 minutes... It was very fast though overall, wasn't it. Do you remember this one that went along side? I have hoped it would come back, but word search is probably as close as we will get.
