"Awesome 680x0 Macintosh Emulator!"
Version: Basilisk II 19b
Run almost all 68k-based Mac software
Ethernet and AppleTalk networking
Runs up to Mac OS 8.1
Full screen or in a window
Ports for Windows/Linux/Mac OS/BeOS/AmigaOS
20+ faster than a real 68k Mac
Built-in host file system access from within guest OS
Need a 68030 or 68040 ROM dump
Need an appropriate Mac OS
Somewhat difficult for a n00b to setup, but there are a number of websites for assistance.
Does not run PowerMac OSes or software. Check out SheepShaver or PearPC for that.
I have been using Basilisk II since 1999. It is truly magic to see a Mac OS boot up with all my favorite extensions/control panels and to run my older Mac software and games. Others and I have supported and encouraged people new to Basilisk II with tutorials and by answering questions. Basilisk II was my obsession for quite a while.
