Virtual x86

I got passed a link to this new emulator, Virtual x86, a complete PC emulator in javascript.  It is in it’s early phases, but it seems to emulate text mode and a single diskette or ISO ok.  It can boot Linux or OpenBSD, but not any MS-DOS protected mode software I tried.  And graphics don’t work…

But it’s 100% javascript!  And open in that you can download the source (tarball,github) under a BSD style license!  So naturally I made my own mirror

I have to say, it’s really cool!

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I’ve loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX… I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since…!
