This actually is a port of PCE in JS, see more here.
It is far more heavier than jdosbox, but at the same time no pluggins!
That’s right! from the homepage you can find screenshots, and download links, and ready to run systems too!
Pretty snazzy as the major hurdle with these old UNIX’en is that they talk directly to the old XT disk controllers, not using the BIOS.. The AT & beyond we got lucky as even in 2012 PC’s still emulate the old WD-1003 controller…
Not that I could imagine *WHY* you would want to run the 8088 version of Xenix (or the 286 version too for that matter) but rest assured you now can.
I came across this PC emulator, PCE, which is unique in that it can run IBM ROM’s. While it is limited to the original IBM PC, and XT, it’s still a good little emulator.
And perfect for super ancient touchy stuff…
