This is probably the time for me to chime in:
I *already* run a BBS. It uses "vintage" FIRST CLASS software to
access. The software is for Mac or Windows.
The Windows version is a 16-bit Win 3.11 app that will still run under
(most) current versions of Windows (never tested on Vista). It has a
Y2k problem though, as it will display current messages as being from
1909 instead of 2009. Not a big issue anyhow really.
The Mac version however, must run on a NON-OS/X (i.e. classic). I
haven't found an OSX client that will connect to my server yet. The Mac
version has no Y2k problem, everything displays OK.
You can find out more about my BBS by visiting
where you can download the client and try
connecting to the BBS. There's a real-time chat system available as
well as Vintage files for your Apple II, Amiga, Windows, Mac etc., And
the nice thing about First Class is that you can use your mouse,
multiple windows, and upload/download/chat/send messages, all at the
