Just discovered this absolutely excellent ZX Spectrum emulator - FBZX (http://www.rastersoft.com/fbzx.html), that seems as though it's still being maintained and loved by the dev (last update was only December 2011). It's the same chap who brought us the tremendous DeVeDe that I still use to this day, so its a trustworthy program too.

I've just had a play with it and I much prefer it to FUSE. This handles fullscreen better and just feels easier to use imho. The fact though that it is still being maintained is a real big plus for me though - it works great on Precise 64 bit.

Give it a go. Personally I'd love to see it make the main Ubuntu Software Centre so more people could get their hands on it. :)

Just as a heads up, if you click the link above you'll find FBZX at version 2.10.0. I'm thrilled this emulator is still being developed personally, and I just had to bring it to the attention of Ubuntu using ZX Spectrum fans.
