    I have a mac, but I'm not running Synchronet on it. The VM I'm using to run bbs.synchro.net on Win7-32 is under Microsoft's Hyper-V (on Win10).

    I've used Oracle VM Virtualbox on my Win10-64 but I don't have a valid win7 activation key so I keep an old win7 ultimate 32bit PC running so I can fart around with the old (ancient; archaic; obsolete) Turbo Pascal 7 and host 16 bit doors more easily (since I am so lazy n such :)

    Not really, though a lot of hardware bridging support has been added ... vbox-current now has to be hosted on an x64 host OS

    No offense, Brah, but as DM said in reason 1. to test Synchronet ....

    Nothing is perfect, nor is any project complete ....

    Why not just pick an OS, install SBBS on it, and try it out ... because, if you wait until the Program is Completed, then, updates will no longer be available! :-)

    does win 10 run sbbs fluidly or is there a few hiccups i should be aware of before i get my msp?

    No, hiccups, but all 64-bit flavors of Windows aren't well-suited to running 16-bit DOS programs. So if you want to use/run 16-bit DOS programs, then a 32-bit flavor of Windows would be better than 64-bit.
