For those of us with a fond memory of older Mac OS’s, the iPhone is bringing the nostalgia back big time.  We talked about the Mini vMac last week.  There is another group called the ‘MacOS iPhone Project‘ who are doing the same kind of work.  They look to have a working app out shortly.  More screenshots below from their site:

This was the first sign of our success, it took many weeks, but we got there.

This is where we ran into one of our biggest issues, the cursor, it sound simple, but apple didnt make it easy for us.

I wonder why that happend? Is there code stolen from the Qemu project? OH NOES!!! We would like to thank the Qemu team for creating something this good and open source.

This was the first test of the cursor, accessing menus.

Our System Properties, just as if you viewed them on a Macintosh SE.

This is our main disk (image). Plus some stuff OS X added when we created it and then mounted it.

MacPaint, our favourite mac classic applications, dragging works quite well.

MacDraw, I could sit for hours playing with this, wish I could add text :(

No journey back in OS History is complete without looking how far Calculator has come.

Now, its time to shutdown (or restart). This is where it currently crashes, and the iphone will hang for a few minutes and then return to the home screen.
