    Using the BOCHS x86 emulator some developer has gotten Windows 95 running on an iPad.

    Looks like Windoze 95 is as slow on the iPad as it was on my old Desktop. They should take that particular iPad out into the back yard, dig a deep hole and bury it!

    I remember when Windows 95 first came out. It was a big deal. It had preemptive multitasking while Mac OS 8.x only had co-operative multitasking. It is amazing to see the operating system run on a 1/2 tablet device. Just like it is now amazing to see of the old arcade games that cost $$$$ run on a pentium 4 PC that costs $150.00.

    Just think where the technology would be in another 10 years!
