BILL is the owner of a powerful software company known for its monopolistic and predatory business practices, not to mention ruthless extermination of competitors. Now Bill has ported his market-dominant operating system to the Mac in an attempt to wipe out the last remaining obstacle between him and COMPLETE WORLD DOMINATION!

BILL will attempt to replace the wonderful MacOS system on the world's various Macs with his own twisted derivative. Only YOU and your trusty CHAINSAW can prevent Bill from achieving his megalomaniac goal.

On your way you will find allies to help you in your noble quest. Occasionally "THE MAN" himself will appear and undo Bill's foul mistreatment of his precious Macs. A lesser but none the less valuable ally is the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, which occasionally sees it fit to prosecute Bill for anti-trust violations. This will slow him down and distract him from the task at hand.
