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.

Yep, that's how things are.

Being that the NT/2K/XP versions run on non-DOS core, guess what really underneath if you remove all the M$-tweaks ??

YES! It's OS/2, but not as you know it !

That's why NT/2K and (XP?) can run 16-bit OS/2 executables.
NT 3.51 even supported OS/2 HPFS filesystem.
(You can still get HPFS running under NT)

All this from a company that claims to be innovative !

IMHO M$ has never produced anything innovative.
(Except their outstanding mouse-products)
