Video: Windows 95, 98, 2000 and XP simultaneously running virtualized on Linux
The idea of visualizing the history of Microsoft on four sides of a desktop cube does sound enthralling no matter how much you despise the company’s products. That’s precisely the reason why I spent a whole night trying to configure four different operating systems to run virtualized on QEMU/KVM with networking and multimedia capabilities. The results look good, especially when you have a compositing window manager to extrapolate their effects.
|Processor||Intel Core 2 Duo 6300 @ 1.86GHz|
|Host Operating System||Linux From Scratch|
|Host Kernel||Linux 2.6.21|
|Host Virtualization Setup||QEMU 0.9.0/KVM-20|
|Desktop Environment||Beryl 0.2.0/Xfce 4.4.1|
Note: Windows 98 and 95 don’t like KVM at all, so I had to run their respective virtual machines with the
Absolutely awesome! Thanks for sending the link. Beryl is running great on my computer. Except that at times when I reboot, Kwin loads instead of Beryl. I have also upgraded to 7.04. Didn’t like Compiz. but the rest is great.

How you can run Windows 95 in a Intel Core 2 Duo???
I had problems when I tried do that in a Intel P4.

Well, strictly speaking, neither of the virtualized operating systems are running on a Core 2 Duo processor. Instead, they’re seeing the ‘virtual’ processor available to them from the ’emulator’. I haven’t tried installing Win 95 on my PC directly but I’m almost sure that it won’t succeed under normal circumstances.

Yeah, is very difficult install W95 directly in the HD. But I was using the VMware Workstation and can’t run it.
Maybe I need use QEMU in my Ubuntu… let’s work!

The sad part is you still set up a camcorder to record your monitor to show it off… VLC stream capturing ftw!
