Windows 95 on iPad: Sure, but why?

A developer manages to fit the 15-year-old operating system on Apple's latest baby.

For some, watching the above video is a nostalgic walk down memory lane. For others, memories of BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and other Windows 95 bugs come screaming back like a nightmare. Running a BOCHS emulator--which produces a virtual x86 environment for Windows, Mac, and Linux--the developer managed to fit the 15-year-old operating system on Apple's latest baby.

While the BOCHS platform is compatible with Vista, we doubt we'll see it or Windows 7 on an iPad due to the hardware limitations. What we really want is a Windows XP/Adobe Flash combo on the iPad. Now that would be an accomplishment!
