Does your Mac also boot into Windows? Mine does, and it’s a pretty great perk of owning a Mac since 2006. But modern Intel-based Macs aren’t the only ones that can dual boot operating systems.

Proof? This Amiga from the 1980s booting up Mac OS 6.0.1, the result of a particularly clever hack from the vintage computing archives.

The Commodore Amiga has become a classic target for nostalgic gamers to relive their early gaming experiences. iOS has seen its fair share of releases from the retro computing platform, including Battle Squadron One, Alien Breed, Babylonian Twins, and Defender of the Crown, just to name a few. There are several more in the works, as well.

Today, however, developer Cope-Com announced the release of classic two-player shoot-em-up, Battle Squadron, for OS X and PC. It follows up a successful iOS release in 2011 as well as one for Android in 2012.

There are few vintage computing clans who rival Cult of Mac members in zeal and tenacity, but fans of the Commodore Amiga come close.  The successor to the widely popular Commodore 64, the Amiga was a 16 bit multitasking computer that found great success in the gaming and video production markets.

Now the Computer-That-Never-Dies is coming to the OS of the future: iAmiga for iOS has been demoed and is (hopefully) coming soon to the App Store.
