On IntelMacs running 10.6.8 or below, you can install the optional Rosetta, which allows you to run most PPC Apps on Intel chips…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIzZOhZPpaU
Or you could double/triple/quadruple emulate with OSX 10.6.8 or less>iEmulator>Windows>VirtualBox>Linuxhttp://www.lifehack.org/articles/featur ... ndows.htmlhttps://www.cygwin.com
I was "awake" much of the night, for reasons that shall go unmentioned, thinking that the "PPC emulation" had something to do with 10.6.8 being the "last OS that could run Classic"??? . . . forgot about Rosetta. I have started to try out VB about a year back, pretty complicated at the time . . . so, could be a possibility, but there is the whole using the actual PPC hardware, and flogging it forward, "damn the torpedoes of modern technology, etc" . . . that emulation doesn't exactly provide . . . .
Also thinking about those PowerMax PPC MDD units, as not being too much different price wise than the MacPro's; but compared to what I saw when we were shopping for used parts on eBay there is a fairly large increase . . . is PowerMax testing their units and/or doing stuff to them . . . did they buy them on eBay for less and then are kicking up the price . . . in other words they take the risk of buying from eBay, test them and market them . . . or, no difference--it's always a risk buying old/used units??
Thanks for the thought, I'm in LA/westside not too far from LAX . . . I'll keep it in mind, perhaps might be fun to bring it back to life like I did with my ST . . . . Has to be amusing . . . but, no worries, could be a "bridge too far."
