This is worth thinking about.  I know of four Apple II emulators for
Linux--KEGS (mentioned above), Apple ][ emulator for Linux:


ProDOS emulator (which emulates a //e):


XGS (emulates a //gs):


We could add in Basilisk, Executor and vMac for Macintosh emulation, and
Bochs, Wine, and dosemu for Microsoft.  I've also seen arcem, a
"register level emulator of the Acorn Archimedes A4x0 system."  Marshal,
would this possibly run Topologika programs directly?

We should also put up something about getting info from those various
systems to Linux.
