After what seems like ages, DOSBox has finally been updated to a newer version. This hugely popular MS DOS emulator lets you run most applications and games that require native MS DOS support on modern operating systems such as Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Mac OS and Linux. The latest build (v0.74 dated 12/5/2010) includes a number of bugfixes including some compatibility updates which add improved support for Windows 7. If you are in love with those old school games such as Prince of Persia, Dangerous Dave, Aladdin, Commander Keen but can’t play them on your new operating system, give DOSBox a go. It’s easy to setup and works with most DOS based games that are around.
