Bizzaro-world. It's like Executor on steriods 
( . I never knew 
that there was such a beast. I couldn't even find a screenshot. I wanted 
to see how the blend of MacOS and MOTIF looked (that's going to be an ugly 
baby, but I wanted to see it anyway).

Hehe, I like the summary on

" If anything, NuTek proved that uncontrolled 'cloning' of the Macintosh 
would result in the same type of compatibility problems familiar to the 
Wintel world. "

No doubt! That rarely ends well. Emulation is a tough gig. Ask the ReactOS 
team, the WINE & CrossOver guys, or the half dozen MS Exchange clones that 
try to keep up with MAPI. The put a lot of honest effort into it, and the 
results are still... meh.
