Apple's iPhone now runs the full version of MacOS--MacOS 7, that is!

The MacOS iPhone project has successfully crunched the classic edition of Apple's Macintosh operating system, released in 1991, onto the company's popular cellphone. It took many weeks just to get it running, the developers report, but ultimately the whole system, including apps like MacPaint and MacDraw, run well enough to "sit for hours playing this this."
