Run Windows on the Raspberry Pi (sort of)

Greg McCarthy decided to see if it was possible to run Windows on the Pi. He succeeded with versions 1.01, 2.1 and 2.11. He also used someone else’s instructions to get Windows 95 running as well. All the versions use Qemu to do it. You can get the instructions to do this from his blog. Bear in mind that it runs very slowly and is practically unusable, but at least it runs!

    People will end up writing a BASIC interpreter next.
