For Mac OS X
Guides on emulating older applications

This package contains a variety of freeware apps in a single installer for both PPC and Intel Macs.

Mostly Open Source & freeware software, with standard titles such as "The Gimp, VLC, MPlayer, Firefox,
Camino (remember this?), Audacity, The Unarchiver, AbiWord, LiquidCD, InkScape, etc, etc".

Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

The package installer requires Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or later, to work. Nor does it list any of the included software titles or their version numbers...

You must install to see what's included Tongue
It may be easier to get the same from alternative online sources.

Perhaps the best thing about this is the mounted .dmg graphic Tired

that's not necessarily the case - had I ventured further into Pacifist's nested folders, I might have been able to figure it out ... I was hoping someone else would take that more time-consuming step Smile

some quick screenshots from Pacifist

Thanks for adding these. They're much better than nothing at all Wink

A pity some version info wasn't included in the .pkg.

I added some quick screenshots from Pacifist - which presumably could also be used to install individual apps.

(feel free to remove them, since a complete list w/version is more useful)
