oh snap, QEMU's m68k functionality has gotten good enough to boot Mac OS? Gotta give this a try and see how it compares to BasiliskII/SheepShaver

@The_BFOOL please report out; I could never get SheepShaver to run a damn thing

@dsalo I have a sneaking suspicion it will be a trade of one type of hacky user-unfriendliness for another, but fingers crossed

@dsalo unfortunately the parts that actually make classic MacOS work aren't in the upstream/main QEMU project itself yet, so all the drawbacks of BasiliskII are still there in terms of being reliant on the inscrutability of the Emaculation forums and their tutorials

consistency of configuration is nice if you're already using/familiar with QEMU elsewhere, but fewer features and lack of any GUI settings means I'm not gonna recommend it yet
