    "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.

    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.
