- procedural programming in RAM
- editing and debugging
- low resolution graphics
- high resolution graphics
- beeps and audio

Scroll down to the bottom of the GitHub page to click on the release link to download the zip file. Admin rights are not necessary. Just unzip the file and run the executable. Then click the Disk 1 button and choose the default (master) file. Then click the Apple button to boot up!
