OSNews, Generic OSes No, your eyes aren't deceiving you - we have actually have not one, but two news items on hobby/small operating systems on the same day! You thought the day would never come again, but hey, here we are. You're welcome. Now, what are we talking about? FreeDOS - a test release has been, uh, released for FreeDOS 1.1.

DosBOX is ideal for old DOS games until 1995-1996 , and XDosEMU runs very intensive games like Fallout or Blood .

It emulates a Sound Blaster , a GUS and a Midi synth


I'm not saying you're wrong, but in all my recent Linux attempts, sound doesn't work at all in DOSEMU, and I have no idea why. (I'm not savvy enough to understand how to fix it either, meh.) I've just always found DOSEMU sound support buggy or incomplete whereas DOSBox always works. But yeah, if speed is important, DOSBox ain't for you!

P.S. Check this out (Java):
