I am interested to know which OS your emulation computer uses.

I was recently asked for a 32-bit build of arnold wip. I am interested to know, in general, which OSs people are using for their pc which they emulate CPC on.

EDIT: If I set it up correctly, you can vote ALL that you use, not just one. And I didn't. Hmmm.. I don't know how to make a multi-select poll.
So please vote the MAIN one you use.

XP 32bit on a P4 machine.
I am stranded with this PC for years but it emulates well most 8bit-16bit machines.
I still believe that i got my myopia from the green GT-65 monitor, but i can't prove it! :)

I'd like an option with OS X + Parallels. Nothing beats WinAPE imho.
And I use CPCBox - Amstrad CPC emulator in Javascript too from time to time

OSX with CPC++.
Parallels with Mainly MESS and SugarBox. Both are very accurate and promising. (wip)
WinAPE becomes old... Many things are not properly emulated. But sure, it is nice for developers and PLUS users.

In which areas WinAPE is inaccurate? Does CPC++, MESS or SugarBox offer such debugging capabilities?

The poll is independent of which emulator you use, so although people are saying which emulator they prefer this is not counted and not important here.

The OS they use to run that emulator is the important thing here.

well for emulating the CPC/plus in that case is MorphOS. For emulating anything else Mac OSX.

I'd love a decent CPC/plus emulator for OSX, but there isn't one.
