qemu works well.


and about DOS apps - few small companies are still using our 18-year old 
(so really mature ;) DOS apps. when asked if they like me to write new 
unix version (+lots of adventages here, remote sessions etc.) then don't.
they just don't like to pay anymore because this 18-year program JUST 
WORKS.

that's the worst Microsofts (and others) nightmare: To write a program 
that will be good and will just work.
