As most users are aware, the Apple II, II+, IIe, IIc
had a large user base and following that was used for
this purpose (and still does to this day) on this topic.
There are lots of tutorials that are still available
online that explain the process of various techniques
to de-protect the software. This lead to further
knowledge about disk protection used by the companies
and indepth knowledge of the computer and DOS. (and ProDOS)
There were a lot of copy cards, crack cards and software
for this purpose.
But what about the Apple IIGS? As far as I know,
there were no copy cards for the Apple IIGS and the
amount of copy software severely diminished.
It seemed once the platform changed,
the information just disppeared. Or was it the case the
people moved to other computers that were move alluring at
the time of the GS. (Atari ST, Commodore Amiga)
