AROS in Mac like Magic?
« on: August 27, 2005, 05:07:22 AM »
Ok, since Apple won't release the hardware tech sheets or what ever, thus making it near impossible to write an OS for the hardware...

...why not do something like Magic for Atari? They made an emulator or something that allowed you to run Atari compatable Magic apps on a Mac, from within MacOS. The funny thing is it ran a hell of a lot faster than the OS it was running within, only problem was that everything was German. :/

Like AROS running on OS-X hosted?
Might need an UAE with ppc-jit too.

Ya...

...but on Classic 68k Mac.

You know, the 1cent machines. :)

I suppose a AROS running hosted on a cut down version of m68k Linux would do it.
Ofcourse it would also run on Ataris and Amiga.
Running Amiga-programs on AROS on a Powerbook 540c  8-)

Yeah I have read it, but I donĀ“t think anybody would program anything for old System 7 or 8 these days...
Neither that anybody will do native aros-drivers for such old hardware...
BTW AROS is binary compatible on the 68k, so it will be just like MagicMac.
