I bought this because it runs GEOS and was curious on the implementation. It runs GEOS over MS-DOS. It runs quite smoothly. It came with all the manuals, disks, etc. I ordered a battery for it. Shipping from Asia as far as I can make out. Keeping fingers crossed. It’s very quiet. Keyboard feel is terrific. You’ll see Apple GEOS entries throughout this blog; geoPublish, geoWrite, geoCalc and more.
The Virtual ][ with GEOS on OmniDisk. Here’s a link to a great discussion.

This is a 2mg image I created in Virtual ][. It boots to Super Selector v3.22 which is a text based Program Selector. It works with a mouse or keyboard. I’ve also installed System Utilities v3.1, MouseWrite v2.6.8 and MouseCalc. I’ve already set the default startup subdirectories for MouseWrite, including Accessory and Speller (which you get to via Accessory). I have some Christmas greetings docs you can open for starters.
I have Super Selector on an actual scsi drive connected to my real lle.
Courtesy of Mark Pilgrim who illustrated how to do this. You need to convert it to a .2mg image with CiderPress, then go to Virtual II configuration and set up a SCSI II Card with an OmniDisk. Then you can “Insert OmniDisk Image…” (under Media menu) to mount the .2mg image.
