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: Merge

Merge was a pretty sweet product for SCO UNIX. Of course that was back in the early 90s, when Windows 3 was the thing. Since Windows 9x does not run on DOS, it must have been some feat to get it to work. It sure took long enough!

The $25 SCO OpenServer "freebie CD" from a few years ago (1997 I believe) came with Merge that would run Windows 95. When I got it, I installed it just to try it out. SCO itself was a chore to install, but the Merge install went okay. After a day I got bored, deleted it, and restored my Linux system.
