Mini vMac is described as 'The Mini vMac emulator collection allows modern computers to run software made for early Macintosh computers, the computers that Apple sold from 1984 to 1996 based upon Motorola's 680x0 microprocessors. The first member of this collection emulates the Macintosh Plus' and is an app. There are six alternatives to Mini vMac for Windows, Linux, Mac, AmigaOS and MorphOS. The best alternative is AppleWin, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Mini vMac are MESS, Basilisk II, PCE and Sheepshaver.
MESS emulates portable and console gaming systems, computer platforms and calculators. The project strives for accuracy and portability and therefore is not always the fastest emulator for any one particular system.
Basilisk II is an Open Source 68k Macintosh emulator. That is, it allows you to run 68k MacOS software on your computer, even if you are using a different operating system. However, you still need a copy of MacOS and a Macintosh ROM image to use Basilisk II.
