9 SheepShaver is a MacOS run-time environment for Linux that allows you
10 to run MacOS applications at native speed inside the Linux multitasking
11 environment on PowerPC-based Linux systems. This means that both Linux
12 and MacOS applications can run at the same time and data can be exchanged
13 between them.
15 <P>SheepShaver is neither a MacOS replacement nor an emulator. It runs an
16 unmodified PowerPC MacOS under control of Linux at full speed without any
17 kind of emulation. So it also uses the MacOS 68k emulator to run 68k
18 applications. In this way, SheepShaver is comparable to the "Blue Box" of
19 Apple's Rhapsody operating system.
21 <H2>Some of SheepShaver's features:</H2>
