Mini vMac brings the 68k Macintosh to life on modern computers. It's targeted at emulating the entire family of Macs built with Motorola 680x0 processors, but currently it supports just a handful and is focused on the Macintosh Plus. It was originally conceived in 2001 as a spin-off project to Philip Cummins's larger vMac project, but has since grown to become vMac's successor.
You'll need to find a Mac Plus ROM image to run it, along with Apple System Software (it can handle System 1 right through to System 7.5.5).
- Can be compiled to emulate a Macintosh 128k, 512Ke, Plus, SE, Classic, SE FDHD, II, IIx, or Powerbook 100 (although the Mac II, IIx, and Powerbook 100 emulation is incomplete). The default, precompiled version emulates a Macintosh Plus.
- Can run Macintosh System 1 through to 7.5.5, in addition to pre-1.0 releases.
