Mac-on-Linux is a virtual machine which runs MacOS on top of Linux/PPC. There is no CPU emulation involved since MOL runs natively on the PowerPC processor. All Classic MacOS versions (from 7.5.2 to 9.2.2) are compatible with MOL. Changes: This release adds network autoconfiguration to MOL. Support for booting Linux within MOL has also been included. Performance improvements, a couple of bugfixes, an improved config system, and 603 support were also added. License: GPL.

No, but I just found a http mirror of the latest OpenBSD :)

At last I can put the heavily firewalled work connection to use!

I might try FreeBSD too....
