Apple After yesterday's trip down memory lane with OS/2 2.1, I will today take you even further back. With the help of the recently released Apple Lisa emulator, ToastyTech (another invaluable tool for (G)UI fanatics such as myself) updated its set of screenshots from the Lisa Office System (version 3), the first commercially available graphical user interface for home use. "This Lisa emulator tries to give you the full experience of using an Apple Lisa. The backdrop is a photo of a Lisa that changes as the power light comes on and when you 'insert' a disk. It even plays the sound of the Lisa disk drive running as you access the disk. To start the emulator you must press the 'Power button' just as you would start a real Lisa." Read more for a few notes.

I wonder if anyone knows of a Mac Classic emulator?

This was the PC of choice at my High School, and I remember being hugely impressed at MS Word on the tiny, greyscale screen (WYSIWYG ... Wow!).

All I had at the time was Word Perfect 5.1. Although I still maintain that WP 5.1 had the best Print Preview screen (It had this 3D fly over view). Not bad for a PC running at 20Mhz.

There's a few Mac emulators around. Either Basilisk II or Mini vMac should do the trick. Naturally, it needs the system ROMs and whatnot. As Thom mentioned, you can find most of them on Apple's website.
