I wonder if we might be able to find a way to emulate (remember, we are on
486s and up usualy) and apple IIe, and use a disk image (ram disk?) for
the programs.

This would alowe schools to use the current inventory of apple IIe

The school I am working with (linux lab, K-5, Corbett Elementary School,
Tucson AZ, www.corbettschool.org (page is not up yet) still has a bunch of
apple IIe computers in the classroom.

A lot of these programs were sitelicensed years ago.
