13 Linux Emulators That Take You Back In Time!  
 
Bring back the Commodore 64 platform to your desktop, or Atari, even Sinclair. These 13 emulators offer a trip down memory lane.  

Saturday, April 19, 2014:  Remember those old home computers that we used to love so much? Names like Commodore, Atari and Sinclair are etched on to the history of computers as the ones that laid the foundation for our modern PCs with their immense computing speeds.

Well, while those systems may now be outdated, many argue that they'll never be irrelevant. Google recently built an emulation system on Chrome, which brings the Commodore64 back to life and here we bring you 13 other emulators that bring all these platforms back to your desktop.

Commodore

1. E-UAE PowerPC JIT

This project is a successor of the E-UAE Amiga emulation project, the goal is implementing Just-In-Time code compilation for PowerPC processors.

2. plus4emu

This is an open source, portable emulator of the Commodore 264 family of computers (C16, C116, and Plus/4), written in C++, and supporting Windows and POSIX platforms (32 bit Windows, 32 and 64 bit Linux, and MacOS X have been tested). It implements accurate, high quality hardware emulation, however, the system requirements are higher than that of most other emulators.

3. VICE

VICE is a program that runs on a Unix, MS-DOS, Win32, OS/2, Acorn RISC OS, BeOS, QNX 4.x, QNX 6.x, Amiga, GP2X, Dingoo, Syllable or Mac OS X machine and executes programs intended for the old 8-bit computers. The current version emulates the C64, the C64DTV, the C128, the VIC20, almost all PET models, the PLUS4 and the CBM-II (aka C610).

Atari

4. ARAnyM

ARAnyM is a software virtual machine (similar to VirtualBox or Bochs) designed and developed for running 32-bit Atari ST/TT/Falcon operating systems (TOS, FreeMiNT, MagiC and Linux-m68k) and TOS/GEM applications on any kind of hardware - be it an IBM clone (read it as "PC" :-), an Apple, an Unix server, a graphics workstation or even a portable computer.

5. Atari++ Emulator

The Atari++ Emulator is a Unix based emulator of the Atari eight bit computers, namely the Atari 400 and 800, the Atari 400XL, 800XL and 130XE, and the Atari 5200 game console. The emulator is auto-configurable and will compile on a variety of systems (Linux, Solaris, Irix). Its emulation features are stunning.

6. Atari800

Atari800 is the emulator of Atari 8-bit computer systems and 5200 game console for Unix, Linux, Amiga, MS-DOS, Atari TT/Falcon, MS-Windows, MS WinCE, Sega Dreamcast, Android and other systems supported by the SDL library.

7. Hatari

Hatari is an Atari ST/STE/TT/Falcon emulator for GNU/Linux, BSD, Mac OS X, Windows and other systems which are supported by the SDL library. The Atari ST was a 16/32 bit computer system which was first released by Atari in 1985. Using the Motorola 68000 CPU, it was a very popular computer having quite a lot of CPU power at that time. Unlike many other Atari ST emulators which try to give you a good environment for running GEM applications, Hatari tries to emulate the hardware of a ST as close as possible so that it is able to run most of the old ST games and demos. Hatari is open source software and is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).

8. Steem

Steem is an emulator for the Atari STE computer created many years ago by Anthony and Russell Hayward. It's now here and open source, and people are creating their own weird and wacky variants.

Sinclair

9. FBZX

FBZX is a Sinclair Spectrum emulator, designed to work at full screen using the FrameBuffer or under X-Windows.

10. Fuse

Fuse (the Free Unix Spectrum Emulator) was originally, and somewhat unsurprisingly, a ZX Spectrum emulator for Unix. However, it has now also been ported to Mac OS X, which may or may not count as a Unix variant depending on your advocacy position. It has also been ported to Windows, the Wii, AmigaOS and MorphOS, which are definitely not Unix variants.

11. Spectemu

Spectemu is a fast and accurate emulator of the original 48k ZX spectrum. Features include sound emulation, tape loading with border stripes and much more.

12. SimCoupe

SimCoupe emulates the SAM Coupé - a British Z80-based home computer released in 1989 by Miles Gordon Technology.

13. z81

z81 is a Sinclair ZX81 (aka TS1000) emulator. The ZX80 can also be emulated. There are actually two versions - z81 (for svgalib), and xz81 (for X). Also included are zx81get (a ZX81 tape reader), and saverom (a program to save the ROM from a ZX81).
