    Great work :3
    Too bad Old3DS can't do it for now (well maybe it will be able, not sure for that).

    As for legal problem of Windows 95, to be honest I'm not sure either, I can only provide what I heard.
    I heard that since Windows 95 is super-old, out of commision, public (massive) use and without a support AND Microsoft said they are not gonna make war about this one (gimme proper words dangit), it should be ok to throw Windows 95 ISO all around network without issues.
    However as I stated, it's what I heard, I can't confirm it for 100% certainity, it's just some sort of idea/track to check if someone wants to try.
    Hint - something about law, court, "it's not ours anymore" thing.

    Now then, you made me want to feel old times Windows once again. I don't have New 3DS at the moment so I will just go with Virtual Machine on PC.
    Ahhh the sounds, the sounds...

    well im hoping the dosbox build gets lots of improvements like actually binding keys and shit because wolfenstein runs on it too and the music and sound are good .... even though we have CTRWolfenstein the dos version would be better but atm the Ctr version will have to do

    With these Specs? And this resolution? You wouldn't even be able to browse the web in any good way, besides the specs of course.

    The N3DS has very good specs, the O3DS is also okay. There is much more to computers than a web browser.

    Like running exe apps :P

    Hmm, I wonder if you can actually put anything on the OS? Like make a new file or something? And where would it go?

    You could edit the existing image file from W95 and add files yourself but it take a while. Most stuff from these days won't run on W95 anymore anyways, maybe an old version of Opera but won't help much without internet.

    They also jumped onto the train when I managed to get Windows 95 running on my SmartWatch which was easy as hell and even went on one of the biggest IT magazines...
    Besides that, they jump on everything "bizarre" these days.

    Generalist sites only report on the stuff "normal people" find interesting. We all know this. :P

    Still, if I were to head such a thing, I'd actually be ashamed if a rag like Kotaku were the first to notice. :/

    Regardless, great work. I've got different things to do, no time to sink into such things, and people like me don't thank people like you often enough.
