Very easy to use and pretty impressive look and feel.

Okay, now for installation.

  1. We have migrated the maintenance of GNUSim8085 to launchpad.net. Will you please update the links in your article to point to corresponding ones in launchpad? you can simply place a link http://www.gnusim8085.org which currently redirect to launchpad page. It will be great if you did not provide direct link to a binary so that people get latest and greatest instead of old versions.
