My god, you are tedious...

Someone did. It was one of the first apps I searched for in the Watch app store on April 24th when my Watch arrived. Just because I knew someone would have done it. No, I didn't install it.

I would prefer to see it running AmigaOS 2.0 which is from the same era as 7.1, both ran on 68k series processors but emulating AmigaOS would make better use of the on chip GPU and Sound and as far as multitasking, media prowess and even interprocess scripting with AREXX. AmigaOS though from a company even more beleaguered than Apple at that time packed a punch.

I ran OS 7.5.5 on an old SE/30. It was no problem at all. It was only when the Internet came around that I had to lose the SE/30 because it didn't even have grayscale. I could see some pages in the browser, but any color and I was dead.

The "but but but you need at least 2GB of RAM" trolls would have you believe computers just weren't capable of running on anything less. How ever did Apple and NeXT manage to sell workstations and servers with only megabytes of RAM?

It really isn't trolling, every computer I've ever had ended up needing more RAM. It is a need that won't go away.
Shows that speech recognition software can run locally on iOS even when it is emulated!
I liked my QL even better.
I had me a 500 with a FULL MEG of RAM, from December 1990 to June 1994. It was a great four years.
I'm pretty sure I didn't truly take advantage of even half of what it could do. But hey... ProWrite, Rise of the Dragon, Zak McCracken, Civilization 1, and various instalments of the Leisure Suit Larry series did me just fine.
Amiga Workbench, though, wasn't that great.
Speaking of NeXT....
(and remember, this was in 1992!)

Wonderful. A feat of daring do.
I'm waiting until someone writes an app for Apple Watch simulating the Eight Ball fortune teller.
The QL was excellent for graphics, I implemented a realtime 3D wireframe cube builder on it (in 1984!).
The 68010 and an excellent stack based floating point library (and some high school math) made it all work.
It also had the best BASIC at the time and some excellent built-in programs (spreadsheet, database, word processor) that almost never crashed. The future of personal computing could have been British.
