Certainly, there are simulators for the 1130, PDP-11, PDP-8... They run in simulation faster on a PC than on the original machine..  But you don't have the thwap of the cards in the reader, or the whine of the chain in the printer, or need to swap disks between passes for the Fortran compiler.

In this age of virtualization,
I was wondering if there are simulators in software (say, for Linux)
of famous old computers: PDP-11, VAX, Cray-1, IBM 1130, IBM/360,
CDC 6600, even the ENIAC perhaps.
 From instruction set, to OS, to applications.

Any references?

Thanks,
Gus Correa
