It even runs all the old Mac applications, "Mac Classic."
The icons are good because they are vector art so that they can be
infinitely scaleable. It has a UNIX prompt, but X-Windows is a separate
application. It's configured. I installed it by booting from the Mac OS X
CD-ROM on an Apple PowerBook.
It's kind of slow. Yet, it has good performance for a personal computer.
It has some bugs. For example, mine has some power adapter and system
runtime bugs. It appears to have several clocks.
It's also kind of fast.
