Great. They're good fun, I use one as a terminal to 2 Linux boxes.

IIRC, yes but it needs more memory than 6 and runs slower. I run 6.08
on mine.

See: http://ccadams.org/se/ and http://www.jagshouse.com/jagshouseopen.html
for software and info. Apple still has system 6 and 7 on their website if
you need it but getting system software from the net onto 400k floppies is
not easy if you don't have an old Mac already.
