Windows 3.1 running on a Nokia N95 (w/ Symbian side by side)

"In what can only be called "totally frakking awesome", someone installed Microsoft Windows 3.1 on a Nokia N95. By using DOSBox, Polish developer Marcin-PRV was able to install the ageing operating system on the Symbian-powered smartphone, allowing both operating systems to run side-by-side.
Sure, it might not be particularly useful or usable, but that doesn't mean it isn't totally cool. DOSBox was used to emulate a 486-class processor."
Not really sure why Marcin-PRV did this, still cool nonetheless for the geek factor alone.

win 3.1 run on N95 is not useful .Win 3.1 is a so lack of functions
The idea isn't the usefulness but just the thought it can be done. It also shows how far phones have gotten when you can load a true PC Os onto the unit and run it side by side with the phone's own OS. 3.1 on a phone definitely has very limited uses except as a proof of concept that it can be done.
Plus it would be cool just to say you own a phone that runs PC Windows and not Windows Mobile.
