Amazing shots of our next Java emulation project!

Here are shots of our next forthcoming project. I let you all guess what this emulator is actually trying to emulate...
And no... this is not fake at all, just click on the images for proof...


Golden Axe VGA in a Java Applet! Dyna Blaster VGA in a Java Applet!Cool Spot VGA in a Java Applet!

Populous EGA in a Java applet Duke Nukem EGA in a Java Applet!The Exterminator CGA in a Java Applet!

Windows 1.01 in a Java Applet! Windows 3.0 Setup in a Java Applet! RedHat Linux in a Java Applet!

Impressive, isn't it?

    I think it'll be a dos emulator for java, isn't it? ;) But, great news. Can't wait for a first release :)

    That's right. This is a PC/MsDos x86 emulator in Java applet.
    So far we support:
    - CGA, EGA, VGA, Text, Mode X modes
    - EMS, XMS
    - Floppy boot disks
    - HLE Emulation (to run MsDos applications) or LLE Emulation (to boot and run operating systems).
    - Work-in-progress protected mode
    - Basic keyboard support
    - Basic mouse support

    which system spec do you recommend? Java is very slow, so i think you need a 3-4 ghz processor to emulate in correct speed.

    But, Windows 95 under Java? cool :)

    Hey, this is pretty cool as a tech demo, but is it actually useful?

    I'd prefer to see updates for your great Jaguar emulator and other "inactive" projects :)

    Using the interpreter mode, you can divide the actual speed of the host machine (3Ghz for your example) by 100 (so 30 Mhz in our case). Most MsDos applications and old games do not need such speed. So far the performance in Java is a bit lower than the performance of DosBox for example but it is already quite great.
    Using the preliminary dynamic recompilation engine, you can divide the actual speed by 10 (so 300 Mhz emulated speed in our case).
    If we finalize the protected mode, it means any Windows, Linux or x86 OS working under Java ;)

    I admit this is more a proof of concept demo but this is really nice to have an online/offline MsDos or PC emulation in Java.
    You can have old MsDos games working online, see demos running that you cannot even run on your computer, slow down too fast old games, you can quickly access a MsDos or an application or developement tool online... etc.
    There are tons of possible usage for such an emulator (or virtual machine).
