Emulating the past - old games on new Linux

Author: JT Smith

The Linux Journal brings us this reminiscence: "I learned a lot about computers from my Color Computer. I wrote programs in BASIC and assembly language. I also had lots of fun playing the arcade type games.
I expanded my computer from 16K of RAM with no mass storage to 64K of RAM with 2 floppy drives. The computer was even able to run the OS-9 which is a
UNIX-like operating system that allows multiple users on one computer. I actually had a dumb terminal connected to the serial port of my 64K Color Computer and
had two programs running at once!"
