Windows

In November last year I wrote about the forgotten and obscure feature of early Windows 95 builds that lets you run Windows 3.1 in a window on Windows 95. Since then I was wondering if this would still work on the final build (950) of Windows 95, considering so much has changed since build 58s.

I won't spoil it.

Except Dosbox still fails to emulate a lot of timings correctly and runs slowly in a lot of cases. It's a brilliant piece of code/emulation, but still flawed. This isn't written in anger. The Dosbox developers are some of the loveliest people on the internet. I suspect there are limits to what a PC can actually do to emulate PC architecture and it wouldn't surprise me if Dosbox is hitting those limits hard.
