Submission + - Original DOS Boots in Java Applet

Rhys Newman writes: "Oxford Physics Developers have just released a demo version of JPC; a pure Java applet which boots original DOS and can run a selection of classic DOS games. See the JPC homepage for more information and online demo.

JPC emulates all the hardware of a standard PC sufficient to get DOS booting and running classic (or old) software in original form. As the DOS software is running in a completely emulated environment, the standard JVM security model applies and makes JPC a 100% safe environment to run third party x86 untested/unvetted code.

JPC can run on a mobile phone (or any other device which supports a Java 2 VM), and is also intended to enable secure sharing of CPU resources in a computer grid deployment."

We all like praise, but a hike in our pay is the best kind of ways.

Working...
