OSNews, Generic OSes Some days ago we hosted a head to head review of Bochs, VMWare Workstation and VirtualPC. I received a number of emails asking why I haven't included Netraverse's Win4Lin in the article. The main reason was because Win4Lin is not an emulator in the "traditional" sense of the word; neither it runs under Windows XP, where our previous test were conducted. In fact, Win4Lin can only run Dos and Win9x/ME, under Linux. We got hold of the brand new version of Win4Lin, version 4.0, and here is our review accompanied by some screenshots we grabbed for you.

What? To enable Windows 9x to run on XP?

As the article says, it works by making Win 9x think that it is running on a Dos kernel, as opposed to the Linux kernel. It speficially says that it does not support NT/XP.

Maybe we can achieve that with some form of VMS layer...
