General Development "In this tiny ebook I'm going to show you how to get started writing 6502 assembly language. [...] I think it's valuable to have an understanding of assembly language. Assembly language is the lowest level of abstraction in computers - the point at which the code is still readable. Assembly language translates directly to the bytes that are executed by your computer's processor. If you understand how it works, you've basically become a computer magician." More of this, please.

IIRC VICE is legal. I would be supprised if they weren't considering their spot in the open.

VICE itself, certainly. But how come it's ready to go when I download it from sf, with all firmwares inside? How can they distribute them all? (and from a site about OSS no less)

The Internet says:

The ROM images for the 8-bit components required to make VICE are copyrighted, and you install them at your own legal risk. Tulip
Computers, in the Netherlands, appears to hold the copyright to them, and is being somewhat persnickety about who uses them.
