Emulating the Mac OS on PC

Emulating the Mac OS on PC

Emulating the Mac OS on PC

Ive been doing some research about emulating the Mac OS on PC. I havent found much, other than the Darwin project for OS X, and some older emulators that went to 6.something. Does anyone have information, or could someone enlighten a poor Mac wannabe?

RE: Emulating the Mac OS on PC

Basilisk II is a great emulator that gives you the chance to emulate lots of different processored Macs including the Quadra series. Don't recall if it includes PowerPC options.

Will allow network, floppy disk and CD use. Software is downloadable but you need a Mac ROM from a real Mac installation.

RE: Emulating the Mac OS on PC

With Basilisk II do u have to have a mac to use it?

RE: Emulating the Mac OS on PC

Nope. But you need a real Mac ROM to prove you are the real owner of a real Mac for licensing reasons. Search for Basilisk on the net as it is a free download.
