has anybody tried this little portable System 7 project??

I found it very interesting, although I have not successfully downloaded and installed any extra software yet. Still, it creates a use for those 64Mb USB flash drives that we all used to think were the ultimate in convenient storage. [Wink]

Hadn't heard of it, but it looks interesting enough to try. Hopefully I'll have time over the holiday break.

That is pretty cool.

And, boy, do those images take me back.

that is cool and for those of us not up for that how about quick blast on this ... the Web SE sim

and do explore... you can even run a sim of the MacDraw and MacWrite from the days of yore...

and CP if that other stuff "took you back" this will make you weep... how good was this stuff? Now when the margins have narrowed some of us like to remember why Mac stole our hearts...

Can you find a 386 Win 3.1 sim online?

There's also Puppy Linux for the ones who like more eye candy.

If you're looking for the nostalgia factor, I suggest you play with Mini vMac ( http://minivmac.sourceforge.net/ ). Lots of fun. I recorded a few of my favourite old Mac games:
