3 SheepShaver Screenshots:
SheepShaver is an Open Source PowerPC MacOS run-time environment. SheepShaver enables you to run PowerPC Classic MacOS software on your computer, even if you are using a different operating system.

However, you still need a copy of MacOS and a PowerMacintosh ROM image to use this program. SheepShaver is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).

If you are using a PowerPC-based system, applications will run at native speeds (i.e. without any emulation involved). On other systems, SheepShaver provides the first PowerPC G4 emulator, though without MMU, to enable the execution of MacOS Classic.

Performance with the current CPU emulator using basic just-in-time (JIT) translation techniques is roughly 1/8-th of native speeds.

The following platforms are currently supported: Linux (i386, ppc, x86_64), MacOS X for ppc, Darwin, NetBSD 2.0, FreeBSD 5.3 and Windows for x86. Please note that I am pretty careless of the Windows version since I am not a Windows developer. You are heartly invited to join the effort!

NOTE: This webspace contains precompiled binaries and sources snapshots extracted from development CVS to ease testing until a formal release is available.
