Farat Mazullin has written several emulators, one of them being
fMSX, which emulates the MSX platform. It is available for
download at his site, along with a great deal of information
on the platform:


Hope this helps!

Subject: Old Microsoft MSX standard?

Hello, all:

    While reading some late-1984 Byte mags, I came across a description of
the Microsoft MSX computer standard. Implemented mostly by Japanese computer
manufacturers, an MSX computer is CP/M based with 32k of RAM, a cassette
port, RF modulator, and cartridge slots for expansion. I picture a Z80-based
VIC-20 or C64, although not in that physical form.

    Anyone have any info on this?
