interested in and involved with all kinds of hacking and activities
that promote free thought and the open society. I consider the
emulation scene to be a pivotal aspect of the hacker and Internet
culture. I recall in the mid 90's when MAME started getting
popular and other console emulators were popping up. USENET was
hopping with floods of ROMs posted weekly. Later on bleem! for
the PS1 showed up and by then emulation was unstoppable. It was a
really great time.
Today (2012) we have perfect emulation of every computer and console
system you can imagine, and you can use your world class operating
system GNU/Linux to enjoy it.
