    Title said everything
    Is there a possibility or does it exist already?

    is there an operative system (that isn't windows 3) that does not require more than 256 mb of ram?

    Well if he has an O3DS then tough. (Unless it does work with O3DS, but he just gets really crappy speeds.)

    Apparently Windows won't even boot on o3ds.
    Which is strange because it meets the mimum RAM requirements.

    You can even coldboot Linux reliably with A9LH now.

    I'm a bit disappointed with the existing Windows 95 emulation on the 3DS anyway.

    The official Shutterbug2000 DOSBox build works perfectly, but doesn't have mouse emulation,
    and the latest libretro DOSBox builds that have mouse emulation can't even manage to fully boot Win95. I've only managed to run scandisk and that's it! :unsure:

    I honestly don't even know why anyone would wanna run Windows on an o3DS. Or even Linux, for that matter.

    But with such a little amount of RAM it's hard to do much of anything on it, so I don't really see the point.

    Well, yeah, because that's why the Windows emulator was designed specifically for the N3DS in the first place. :P

    Some minimal Linux distros made for servers or really old PCs actually are made with 256MB of RAM in mind, however running a UI compositor is what generally makes everything slow, besides I bet most of them can't run on ARM natively. Our best bet would be to look at what was ported for other ARM systems and see if it's generic enough to run on a 3DS too.

    Just out of curiosity, would arch linux work? It has a 128mb RAM requirement.

    I have some interesting plans, if they end up coming true you will thank me. ;-)

    Don't see why not, just need to get the kernel support.

    I got a couple, the n3DS is a much nicer package.

    Ported over Qemu. it works on the O3DS but it takes like 30 minutes for DSL to get to the loading screen.

    New 3DS can load Puppy Linux (Slacko) 6.3.0 in a about 6 minutes, DSL in about 4 and TinyCore in about two minutes.

    Lost the 3DSX though.

    I was looking for it on my backups and I finally found it. Here is a crappy port of the fake86 emulator for the 3ds if anyone is interested: https://github.com/masterfeizz/fake86/releases
    Its slow on the o3ds, but on the n3ds it has ok speeds. I mean you can run wolf3d on playable speeds on the n3ds.
    Also, it only emulates up to an 80286, so Windows 3.1 is the max I believe you are going to be able to run
