This is a Wiki ReactiveMicro page to share the Raspbian Pom1, for all Raspberry pi Distribution. POM1 is an Apple 1 emulator and I have compiled it inside Linux to boot at startup in full HDMI screen. Some Raspberry pi can show a mouse pointer for less than a second on your screen before loading the POM1 emulator (on a Raspberry pi 4b the mouse remain visible, you can move it with your mouse device in a non visible screen area) I advise a 1 A+ Raspberry pi.

To install it, unrar it with winrar or similar program, then connect your preformatted SD card from 16gb or more and with win32DiskImager upload the image inside the SD. When ready connect it to Raspberry pi and after connecting to it Keyboard, HDMI cable and power supply give it current, wait some seconds a @ will appear.

I and a friend have design and build a case similar to the one that fitted A**le Computer 1 in mid 70's, for Raspberry pi A+ to 4B. here is the link to the page where you can download the files to 3d Print it!

This is an example of how in 43 years the computers are miniaturized and also with the little effort i made is possible to have in a gum packet size computer an Apple 1 with my distro POM 1 in a Raspberry pi Zero for the price of 25$ complete with cables and SD you see on the top left of this picture, on the right an Apple 1 very similar Clone.

WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE MADE BY A WRONG INSTALLATION TO YOUR SD CARD AND TO ANY DAMAGE YOU MAKE TO YOUR RASPBERRY PI AND YOUR PERSON USING IT. THE OPERATIVE SYSTEM WAS TESTED ON MORE THAN ONE MODEL OF RASPBERRY PI AND WORKED FINE.
