Mac OS 7 emulator, direct in your browser

explore old programs and operating systems has never been so convenient with the help of emulation and virtualization. The problem lies in that both require some technical knowledge, and there are many users beyond outside that they want your dose of nostalgia, but they don’t know how to get it. On this occasion, there is good news for those pioneers who crossed swords with Mac OS System 7 . The Internet Archive placed a copy online, and works quite well.

history tells us that the famous Mac OS System 7 he made his debut in May 1991, and their support was extended until the year 2001, although the latest version was Mac OS 7.6.1 who came to users in April 1997. Technically, everything that predates Mac OS X is considered «classic» by Apple, and with a couple of searches on the Web, those who possess the appropriate emulator or compatible hardware achieve find images without too many surprises. Now… what happens to the rest? They may not have access to an old Mac computer or do not know exactly where to start with the emulators. No problem: in such cases, everything you ask the Internet Archive is a compatible browser.

does not support accents! (or the emulator is not registering them)

The image is based on System 7.0.1 the first «patch» received operating system so to speak. Pre-installed applications include MacDraw and MacPaint, Office Excel package (2.2A) Word (4.0a) and Works (3.0) two versions of Disk Copy, several compressors, and three games: Risk, Cannon Fodder and Shufflepuck (difícil jugar por la latencia en el emulador) . Everything seems to be working well, and I did not find any error beyond the inevitable performance details that affect the overall experience.

Cannon Fodder. Addiction.

Remember that all the material related to this emulation can be downloaded from the Internet Archive in ISO image format, either directly or via BitTorrent. While Apple is known for defending its intellectual property with tooth and nail, I do not think that this System 7 online environment is going to cause problems.
