Should I Upload This?

Those of you may remember....dare I say it....Bonzi Buddy right? Well, I used to think the Parrot was actually cute, but. SO MUCH SPYWARE! Well, I have found the original installer along with an already installed one I made. In other words, you don't have to install it. It also has all addons. I tested it on my Virtualbox Windows 7, its connected to my network, and it's fine. All of Bonzi's servers are long gone, so it's safe. For archival's sake, should I upload this? I believe I have one of the last known working versions. It has versions 2 (Peedy the Parrot, my favorite) and 3 and 4 (The Monkey, Which I Hate). So, what do you think? I'm not a spammer or anything, I'm asking an honest question.

Yes, but it runs in Windows emulators. I use it in my Windows 7 Virtualbox setup.
I think it's Windows 2000 or higher.

I think it´s better to offer this game to a site aimed at Windows SW. The Garden aims at conserving Macintosh SW thus the emulator application is appropriate but not the SW running in the emu.
Else we would be wading through Win/MS-DOS/Atari/Amiga/C64/C128/MSX/… -stuff. Stuff that can be found much more easlily around the 'Net than what we try to gather here.
All above IMHO of course.

Agreed. Perhaps WinWorld could be the more suitable place to upload Windows executable abandonwares. They also have an active forum.

I remember some official publisher statement, but can't remember who wrote this:
To install this software on a Mac, install Windows first.

Often to be read after Apple Computer, Inc. assembled the first Intel Mac computers.
