Yes SSW 6.0.7 is a relative rarity, in any language. So its good to have a copy archived and it's not at all superfluous. Perhaps rarer because 6.0.8 was released six months after 6.0.7's release with updated print drivers only, with no other changes (other than version numbering) to accommodate compatibility with networked print servers and Macs running the new SSW 7.0 OS over the same networks sharing the same printers.

By "My preference (...) is to grab an original copy off one of the Apple Developers CD compilations" I didn't specifically mean the 1992 Dev releases for SSW 6 disks - 1992 is too modern for that OS. For earlier software releases I would look towards earlier releases of Dev disks. Currently, the bulk of the Dev releases hosted at Max's have not been archived here.

"My preference (...) is to grab an original copy off one of the Apple Developers CD compilations"

I have downloaded the January and February 1992 issues of the Apple Developer CDs by curiosity. There is indeed many high quality international systems files on these discs and probably enough to complete some of the Garden collections. But in French language, there is nothing earlier than these ones: French 7.0.1, French Canadian 7.0.1, and French Swiss 7.0.

Well, that French v6.0.7 upload was finally not as superfluous as it may have seem at first sight. In fact, it was hard to find even for the first uploader ("thomas") from Le Grenier du Mac: «Quant-à la 6.0.7 en francais, elle n'est trouvable nulle part mais je l'ai retrouvée sur de vieilles disquettes :-D»

"We're not short of copies of SSW 6.x"

Maybe but localization of operating systems is as important in French as it could be in English. Particularly in Québec, a small francophone country lost in the middle of North-America.

Thanks. If you're looking for more complete versions (Switzerland, Canada & France) in SD or HD floppy disks, you can find them on this link page.

My preference, if I need a safe and complete install set of System 7, or 6 and earlier (for any known language release), is to grab an original copy off one of the Apple Developers CD compilations or other similar Apple compilation releases, here and elsewhere.

Be aware, however that some softwares on this site have been uploaded with viruses...

Please take note that this French language System 6.0.7 is different than the other one found in the "Mac System 6 Collection". This one is localized for France while the other one is localized for Switzerland.
