I setup (re-setup) a PC I had laying around...with a little new hardware (memory,HDD). This PC is not my main PC but the plan is to use this more or less as test machine of sorts....
Today Its a Quad Core, 8 Gig, 120 GIG SSD, 750 GIG standard HDD and DVD 18x burner. The video card from memory is a 1/2 GIG Express card can't remember the brand at the moment but I believe its a NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT. Sound is integrated.
Its dual boot with Windows 10 Professional from a Retail box and Ubuntu 16.0.4. Both are fresh installs.
I am looking for suggested emulation software that would be more Linux based then windows, but I will look into Windows suggestions as well. Nothing against Windows at all but as I said its more as a exploration/test box.
Also software that can be used with my SIO2PC and SIO2USB for my 8 bit machines (I have many). I would also be interested in anything that can emulate Atari ST as I have not had much luck locating a Atari ST at a decent price in my neck of the woods.
Also development software/tools that would be possibly used for 8 bit/2600 development ....Got on the band wagon with this a while back.... went through the tutorials... bought a couple books... and then it stalled out.
