This is a tar ball of the files that existed on a A/UX 0.7 install. It may be incomplete, and there are no instructions on how one would attempt to install it. It is here just for historical sake.

Sweet. So it finally runs on Shoebill! I've wanted to see this running ever since I first found out about it.

It's totally real. Smile and very much SYSV on an Apple, complete with SYSV's filesystem. No wonder Apple moved to BSD FFS.

I wonder if it is REALLY fake?

The "screenshot" here is from the included file:


From one of the original A/UX developers:

The file is actually a bitmap (640x480). When you decipher it, you find an image with a fake menu bar, and a fake window having the name 'OREO Initial Console Emulator'. This was fluff to make the low-level boot look more Mac-like. "Oreo" was another code name - we had tons of codenames - the code name was changed every few months.
