Submission + - JPC is now open source (ox.ac.uk)

Miguel de Icaza writes: "JPC, the pure java x86 PC emulator, is one of the coolest things I've seen done with FreeDOS in the last few years. An early preview demonstration was previously discussed on slashdot, but it is now GPL licenced for all. It allows you to boot an instance of FreeDOS in a Java window on your web browser. From there, you can run programs, games, etc. This presents a wonderful opportunity to embed FreeDOS in other systems, or to increase the availability of FreeDOS and DOS applications to users. And now the JPC team has made an important announcement: "Further to your interest in JPC (pure java x86 PC emulator) we are pleased to announce that, with permission of Oxford University, the source code to JPC is now available via the GPL version 2 open source licence." To try JPC or download the source code, visit the project website at: http://www-jpc.physics.ox.ac.uk. But does it run linux?"
