Posted by tdkyo [send private reply] at June 22, 2002, 05:11:40 PM Is there an OS emulators that can be used on an windows environment?(LIke running MAC OS under Windows XP environment?)
Posted by FatalDragon [send private reply] at June 22, 2002, 06:25:26 PM Ugh, realy I dont know... The only OS emulater I know of is WINE which is a MS Windows emulater for Linux.
Posted by gian [send private reply] at June 22, 2002, 07:18:57 PM There is one called Executor or something that is Mac OS on Windows, but I believe that it runs a very primitive rip off of Macos...
Posted by rev [send private reply] at June 25, 2002, 05:29:00 PM First, WINE isn't an emulator. In fact, "WINE" itself is an acronym standing for "Wine Is Not an Emulator." It doesn't emulate anything. It reimplements the Win32 API.
There are Mac OS emulators for Windows. One is called Fusion. However, it only emulates up to a 68040, which hasn't been used in a new Mac for almost 10 years. There are no PowerPC emulators.
There are a few x86 emulators that run on top of Windows, allowing you to run another copy of Windows, Linux, AtheOS, BeOS, OpenStep, or NeXTSTEP. One is called Bochs, and it is entirely free.

Posted by FatalDragon [send private reply] at June 27, 2002, 09:05:36 PM Cygwin kinda lets you run Linux on Windows too(Well, Linux Apps anyway...), I think.
Posted by mrnorman [send private reply] at July 01, 2002, 12:21:22 PM How well does WINE work? I mean, is it really buggy or worthwhile, because if it does completely recreate the win32 API, then I'll make that long awaited complete switch to Linux. Right now, linux is my refuge from Windows, but I really have to run certain windows programs (STUPID MICROSOFT).
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at July 01, 2002, 12:30:52 PM I use WINE to run vti, but stuff like the virtual calc link won't work. It used to play starcraft for me fine, and a number of people use it for a lot of stuff. See www.winehq.com ...it has an apps db that lists what programs work with WINE and how well they work.

Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at July 01, 2002, 09:08:39 PM Do windows programs run slower under WINE than they would in windows?
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at July 01, 2002, 10:14:43 PM Most of the time, yes. Mainly because of the binary translation. If you get the source code you can recompile the program with libwine and (in theory) you should get similar performance to the Windows version running on Windows. There are still a few issues with converting to libwine though (no headers!!! Ack).
Posted by vladimir_l [send private reply] at July 03, 2002, 03:25:00 PM You can run Risc OS ( free , but you'll need your good old rom files ) or 30day trial from this company ( search for it under google Risc emulator ). It emulates risc perfectly and lets you run many programs , it comes with some fun ones aswell. I've tried Cygwin and I can reccomend it to anyone unsure of whther they want Linux on their computer or not.
Posted by metamorphic [send private reply] at July 04, 2002, 04:48:21 PM There is a really good OS emulator that can emulate loads of OS's. Its called something like VMware workstation. It runs on NT 4.0, 2000, XP, and Linux(yes you need a 32bit OS to run it) and it can emulate Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0, Windows Me, Windows 98, Windows 95, Windows 3.1, MS-DOS 6, Red Hat, SuSE Linux, Mandrake and FreeBSD 3.x, 4.3. Oh and the emulator is free to try for 30 days, but you need to buy 'guest OS' packs to use it.
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at July 04, 2002, 05:31:06 PM You can't run PPC operating systems with VMWare though, and the original post said "like the Mac OS...".

What is it with GNU/Linux programmers and recursive acronyms?
GNU=GNU is Not Unix
WINE=WINE Is Not an Emulator

Posted by infryq [send private reply] at July 19, 2002, 05:31:42 PM Mac On Linux runs PPC MacOS >8.6...under LinuxPPC/variants, anyhow, which is as I understand mac hardware only. Hmmm.
Posted by vladimir_l [send private reply] at July 19, 2002, 05:49:27 PM http://www.plig.org/xwinman/ just make linux look like antoher OS , beats me. hahahahaha
Posted by Linux_Penguin [send private reply] at July 25, 2002, 12:05:26 PM Back in the day (as in a few years ago) I really wanted to get the mac OS on my computer, because I wanted something it had for some reason or another. I tried several different emulators, Basilisk II (which was the best yet I never REALLY got it to work). Then there was Vmac which only emulated 500ks. Try http://www.uni-mainz.de/~bauec002/B2Main.html for Basilisk II, it emulates 68k macs.
