BetaNews: Developer launches new version of Windows 95 that runs under Windows 10, macOS and Linux

BetaNews: Developer launches new version of Windows 95 that runs under Windows 10, macOS and Linux. “Who doesn’t feel a little nostalgic from time to time? Progress is great, but sometimes it’s nice to look back at how things used to be — even if it’s only to laugh at how different and primitive things used to be. The world of computing is no different in this regard. Last year, developer Felix Rieseberg released Windows 95 as an Electron app to let 90s computer users relive their younger years. Now he’s back with a second version of the Windows 95 app, and it’s even better than ever — gaming classics such as Doom and Wolfenstein3D are now included, for starters!”

BetaNews: You can now run Windows 95 on Windows, macOS, and Linux

BetaNews: You can now run Windows 95 on Windows, macOS, and Linux. “…if you want to actually try out the original again (or for the first time if you came into Windows more recently) you can do so by installing a new app that runs on Windows, macOS, or Linux. Created by Slack developer Felix Rieseberg, it’s available in the form of an electron app. Most things work exactly as you’d expect them to, including WordPad, FreeCell, Calculator and Media Player, although you can’t currently browse the web with Internet Explorer sadly. It opens but pages don’t load.”
