while checking out some random link on some vintage ads, I found this exciting development..
Philip Pemberton’s 3b1 emulator.
While a work in progress, he’s getting there, so far it’s capable of booting the diagnostic diskette, although I couldn’t get it to run any programs….
I’ve personally only dealt with the 3b2′s so I don’t know all that much about the 3b1′s short of them running some SYSV (r2?) Unix, and it was some half hearted attempt by AT&T at marketing Unix to the masses.
I’ve built the emulator under windows, and compressed it up here.
It’s interesting though, and more interesting to see where it will go…
