MacintoshPi: run full-screen versions of Apple Mac OS 7, 8, 9 under Raspberry Pi #Apple #PiDay @Raspberry_Pi @jaromazu
MacintoshPi is a project that allows running full-screen versions of Apple’s Mac OS 7, Mac OS 8 and Mac OS 9 with sound, an active Internet connection and modem emulation on a Raspberry Pi.
All this without the X.org manager, only a multimedia SDL2 library and from the CLI / Raspberry Pi OS Lite. This lets emulators use the full power of Raspberry Pi, making them more stable and useful in combination with additional retro software. Installation requires running a single script on a clean Raspberry Pi OS Lite and waiting about two hours for the packages to compile and install. In addition, thanks to a document contained in the project, it is possible in dual-boot to use the fastest (bare-metal) Commodore 64 / 128 / PET emulator BMC64, thus building an interesting retro package on a single SD card.
The entire MacintoshPi project runs on Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W, 2, 3, 3B, 3B+ (at present, it does not run on version 4).

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
