Awesome Atari ST Emulator for Linux, Steem-
Just extract from the archive and run the executable- nothing to "install". You need to download the OS ROMs from the links on the site.http://steem.atari.st/
The good ST games were very much like DOS games of 1992-1996 or Sega Genesis games, as the Sega Genesis console was very similar to the ST in hardware (same 68000 CPU, speed, audio, etc), but the ST predated the Genesis by 5 years.
Hundreds of great games, the Automation ST disk archive-http://steem.atari.st/automation.htm

The ST was my computer from 1985-1990 or so. far ahead of its time, and the best value of the latter half of the 80's. The ST could run Minix, a precursor to Linux
...and it was better than the Amiga! (...runs and ducks
BUt seriously, while the Amiga had some innovative design features, also well ahead of its time, the ST was the better value proposition from the price/performance standpoint.
It really took until around 1994-1995 for x86 PC's to catch up to where the ST and Amiga were in 1985-1989.
