 Subject: How far can the Atari XL/XE be upgraded in 2010?

As time keeps going on I keep wondering several things about Atari 8-bits.

First, when will there be an Atari 8-bit emulator for the PC that is fully usable?

I have dozens of files and programs that still do not work with any current emulator out there, even though they will run fine on a PC.

The reason I ask.. is because of portability. I need to run some or all my Atari 8-bit programs on a portable device.



Secondly, how far can an XL/XE be upgraded to modernity today in 2010? What would it take to get an 8-bit to seamlessly appear to multi-task, run Firefox, yet still look like an Atari 8-bit underneath with full 8-bit functionality?

ANy websites with how far people have gotten to turning an 8-bit into a modern and expandable computer?
