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.

Re: Wabi

Way back when, Sun had Wabi for Windows compatibility and MAE for Macintosh compatibility. Who knows why they dropped them.

I believe that Wabi is still available for Linux, from Caldera.

Rather than expend so much effort propping up these relics from the DOS era, I think the better choice would be to concentrate on Wine. VMware is the way to go when you need actual virtualization. Wine is the way to go for the best execution speed. If you develop for Windows systems, you might want to get a Windows PC.
