Nobody "squealed" - the guy is hosting this from his home connection (note the gotdns domain name - those are generally only used for dynamic connections, or home ISP connections).

If you wanted to use this, you could have easily downloaded Mini vMac at any point in the last decade, along with software necessary. I've had Ancient Art of War and Dark Castle up in it for quite some time now.

If you need a more modern Mac (for instance, a Classic replacement), try SheepShaver.

Apple had these OS available as a free download on their FTP-server ages ago (before you were born, in the late 90s)

That does not place them in the public domain, or make it legal to redistribute. And ROM images most certainly are NOT legal to distribute.

While someone's home cable connection craters under the load, one quick comment...

If this *does* include copies of Apple System Software (especially 7) then I really doubt it's legal. I don't recall them putting any of that into the public domain.

Even though Apple makes the OS freely available on their website there is a "do not distribute" restriction. The OS is not in the public domain; it is merely free.

This does not even address the question of the system ROM files, which are absolutely not free to redistribute. I don't know if the ROMs are packaged in this archive because so far I've been unable to download it, but I assume that something called the "Mini vMac Full Edition" would contain the ROMs. If so, this package will almost certainly be gone within a few days.

Wow... I've been looking for something like this for years to use all my 80's software that's just sitting there and it's already gone the same day it went up. What can we go squeal on next?
