Does anyone here use mini vmac? I just found it in one of my folders while cleaning up my PC. It's not that bad. Just wondering who else uses it.



OFFTOPIC:
I have a 24MB Disk Image for it
could someone with a Linux run this command and upload the outcome
dd if=/dev/zero of=hfs52M.dsk count=106496

I looked into that once, after someone once showed me it running on a Nintendo a DS, but I lost interest after.

Used it to run old versions of Mac OS. But I Definetly prefer Sheepshaver.

Same here. I actually had Mac OS 9 running through Sheepshaver. It was pretty cool. It definitely took me back. ^^

I have it on my iPod. It's kinda neat to see System 6, System 7, ClarisWorks, and Photoshop 1.0 running on a handheld. Also, when I get hold of a power cord for my Macintosh Portable, I'll use it as a means to prepare a System disk, if needed. I generally prefer Sheepshaver and Basilisk II for general use, but System 7.0.8 and earlier do not run under Basilisk. (vMac runs up to 7.6.1, bombs on OS 8)

If your Portable's battery is hosed, use a PowerBook 100 series adaptor. It can run Portables with dead batteries.
