[20080412] The Machine Emulator
From the freshmeat.net announcement: `` The Machine Emulator, or tme, provides a general-purpose framework for computer emulation. The goal is to create a large library of modules, each emulating a specific computer chip, bus, board, etc. These modules offer standard interfaces that allow you to connect them together to create a whole machine emulation with a minimum of effort.

This release can emulate a Sun 2/120 running NetBSD, a Sun 2/120 running NetBSD, a Sun 3/150 running NetBSD, and a SPARCstation 2 running NetBSD or SunOS 4.1.4 (aka Solaris 1.1.2).''

The interesting part here is the Sun 3 support - machines of that class run on Motorola m68k CPUs, and so far not many emulators are available for that machine, esp. ones that can run NetBSD. (I know about UAE, but I haven't heared reports of it running NetBSD. Correct me if I'm wrong!)
