SheepShaver is an open source PowerPC Apple Macintosh emulator. Using SheepShaver (along with the appropriate ROM image) it is possible to emulate a PowerPC Macintosh computer capable of running Mac OS 7.5.2 through 9.0.4. Builds of SheepShaver are available for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.

Sheepshaver Emulator
  • SheepShaver is a MacOS run-time environment for BeOS and Linux that allows you to run classic MacOS applications inside the BeOS/Linux multitasking environment. This means that both BeOS/Linux and MacOS applications can run at the same time (usually in a window on the BeOS/Linux desktop) and data can.

MODEEMULOP - 68k emulator active, but native register usage. Switches between MODE68K and MODENATIVE are only done with the Mixed Mode Manager.

SheepShaver is an open-sourcePowerPCApple Macintoshemulator originally designed for BeOS and Linux. The name is a play on ShapeShifter,[1] a Macintosh II emulator for AmigaOS (made obsolete by Basilisk II), which is in turn not to be confused with a third-party preference pane for Mac OS X with the same name. The ShapeShifter and SheepShaver projects were originally conceived and programmed by Christian Bauer. However, currently, the main developer behind SheepShaver is Gwenolé Beauchesne.

History[edit]

Emulator

SheepShaver was originally commercial software when first released in 1998, but after the demise of Be Inc., the maker of BeOS, it became open source in 2002.[2] It can be run on both PowerPC and x86 systems; however, it runs more slowly on an x86 system than on a PowerPC system, because of the translation between the PowerPC and Intel x86 instruction sets.[3] SheepShaver has also been ported to Microsoft Windows.[citation needed]

As a free software, a few variants exist to simplify the installation process on Intel-based Macs:

  • ‘Sheep Shaver Wrapper’[4] is built off of Sheep Shaver but it does some of the bundling work for the user.
  • 'Chubby Bunny'[5] also simplifies the set up process of OS 9 visualization on Intel Macs running OS X.

Features[edit]

Redundant

SheepShaver is capable of running Mac OS 7.5.2 through 9.0.4[6] (though it needs the image of an Old World ROM to run Mac OS 8.1 or below[7]), and can be run inside a window so that the user can run classic Mac OS and either BeOS, Intel-based Mac OS X, Linux, or Windows applications at the same time.

Although SheepShaver does have Ethernet support and CD-quality sound output,[8] it does not emulate the memory management unit.[9] While adding MMU emulation has been discussed, the feature has not been added because of the effort required in implementing it, the impact on performance it will have and the lack of time on the part of the developers.
