I was just thinking...Would it be possible in 2000 to write a Xerox Alto
emulator and SmallTalk OS (assuming binaries are available). Is there any
efforts underway? personally I've love to experience an Alto, but unless an
emulator happens this is never going to happen. Historically it's a very
significant machine..and it would be neat to preserve it for future

What makes it difficult to write an emulator for this machine?
