That's because you're an US resident, Armando. I tried it via my US VPN and it worked for me too this time. (it's a free market, they said... ;D)

Well, you've got a real bargain there, John. You can even play some simpler 3D games now, or try out our ObjReader in flesh. :)

Best Free Linux Home Computer Emulators

Quote
This article focuses on software which emulates home computers, a class of personal computer which reached the market in the late 1970s, and became immensely popular in the following decade, selling many millions of units. Leading home computer companies included Commodore, Sinclair, Atari, Apple, Acorn, Tandy Radio Shack, and Amstrad.

Looks like Paul didn't make the list.  :-\

If (Paul = ZXDunny) Then it should be noted the article covers complete computer emulators rather than the BASIC dialects they used to host. It is my understanding that SpecBAS in its current form is arguably a superset of the then usable dialects that cannot be run as-is in any of those emulators.

IIRC Paul used to be a co-author of one of ZX Spectrum emulators but the development stopped over a decade ago.

Please correct me if I am wrong.
Mike

You're right and I didn't fully understand the extent of the term Home Computer.

You can still download 32-bit versions of Debian, Buntus (Lubuntu, Xubuntu), Mint, Fedora, Slackware. I agree that support for 32-bit is going to disappear eventually, but it hasn't happened yet. I know - I should have replied several months ago, but better late than never.

The only thing that was delaying the demise of 32 bit on Linux was ARM. Most ARM processors are multi-core and 64 bit now. SysWoW64 is the only 32 bit environment that is going to be around for a while.
