    Well by now after looking at the title above ^ you already know i am attempting at emulating windows on android, the question is which one of these emulators are the best at emulating windows xp or windows 7?
    Code:
     https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.motioncoding.emulator&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5tb3Rpb25jb2RpbmcuZW11bGF0b3IiXQ.. 
    or
    Code:
     https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.max2idea.android.limbo.main&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImNvbS5tYXgyaWRlYS5hbmRyb2lkLmxpbWJvLm1haW4iXQ.. 
    vnc just isn't doing it for me. :/

    You either have a quad-core 1,7GHz or expect unusable slowness level.

    Anyway, looks interesting. I'll try to grab 'em.

    Not necessarily. I had Bochs running on a 512Mhz XScale smartphone back in the day and it could run Solitare on Win95. :P That said, I'd give it a rest - just use whatever OS is on your smartphone or get a netbook. If you're posh, get a UMPC. Emulating x86 on portable architectures never goes very far.

    That was the age when developers weren't lazy bums searching for a quick buck on the APP MARKET frenzy. Nowadays it's all rushed ports 'n stuff.

    Maybe so, but QEMU actually is pretty resourceful, so I wouldn't cross out everyday office applications. He's not going to play Crisis on that setup, but it should work. Still, he should just get a netbook or something - they're affordable and portable. :P

    Negative results! motioncoding's emulator couldn't even recognize my windows 7 pro iso (nothing wrong with it) and limbo kept force closing everytime i tried to open/run the image but your right limbo is more interesting and intriguing. i'll mess with it some more later, seems like windows 95, 98 and xp work fine from what everybody else is saying.



    @ raulpica and plainscript thanks! let me know what results you guys got with either one of the emulators.

    Considering that Windows 7 is x86, you will need a hardware emulator as well.

    And that's not happening with anything resembling full speed.

    You are wasting your life if you try to find it.

    Actually, once Wine gets Android/x86 support you could use qemu to run that as qemu actually has two modes, one of which runs linux/x86 binaries on linux/whatever without having to do full OS emulation. The only problem is that Wine only has display drivers for X11 and MacOS X.
