Two 3.5 inch floppy disks containing software used to convert an Apple Lisa computer into an Apple Macintosh computer.

When first released in 1983, the Lisa computer used an unusual floppy disk called a twiggy floppy disk. The Lisa 2 incorporated a 3.5 inch floppy disk drive and it was common practice to use MacWorks or MacWorks Plus software to turn the Lisa into a Macintosh computer, which could run software such as Macintosh MacWrite and MacPaint.

It was collected because it is representative of a period when the Lisa and the Macintosh competed against each other, with this software marking the terminal period in the life of the Lisa..

Part of a representative collection of hardware, software, trade literature and promotional material that documents the history of the Apple company, and its contribution to, and impact on the computer industry and society.
