In this case, a 1991 Macintosh Quadra 900 is emulated. The whole can be installed on a Mac, but also works under Windows and even Linux. This is because the basis is Electron, a framework that runs almost everywhere through the use of web technology.
Mac OS 8: vibrant platinum interface
The result is quite impressive. Not only does Mac OS 8 run smoothly with its lively platinum interface, but well-known software is also integrated. Think Photoshop 3, Premiere 4, Illustrator 5.5, StuffIt Expander and even games like Oregon Trail, Civilization II (which crashes right after startup) or Duke Nukem 3D (which runs fine prima).
Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator are also integrated into the virtual machine. However, don’t expect to be able to surf as today’s internet is completely incompatible with ’90s software. Not everything goes perfectly because we had to shutdown and restart Mac OS 8 several times due to operating issues. Just like before?
Install additional software
The virtual machine also supports the transfer of files and applications. In practice, however, it doesn’t seem to work very well, but the developer assures that it is possible to install old Macintosh software (which can be found in the Macintosh Repository, for example). Either way, there is enough standard to give it a try.
