Before I write anything about it, here’s the link to the JPC project

It’s a nice feat these guys have achieved by creating an emulator for Intel x86 architecture in Java. I’m not sure how useful this project would be, but it’s a cool peice of software :) . Hats off to the JPC developers.

Some of the demos with DOS games are nice. Got nostalgic playing the old DOS games; Prince, mario, keen, invaders :)
What more, it can run Linux! .. I’m yet to try their Linux demo though, but the DOS one’s were very fast.

And to top it all, they have release the source code, I’ve just downloaded it and ‘am going to have a look at how they have done it. Meanwhile you can visit their demo pages and enjoy some of the good ol’ DOS games.
