an Android HOOT app--Win95 vm

This is just for laughs,

http://android-apps.com/articles/zomg-w ... mment-1972

shows how in install a Win95 VM under Android, but only for providers that allow non-marketplace apps. i.e., not ATT.

This is an extremely funnily impractical app, only to amaze and astound your friends. (Your friends who know enough about computers and cell phones to be amazed or surprised).

The absolute funniest part is that, if you don't properly shut down your Win95 OS, scandisk will run the next time it boots. **EDIT= ignore next sentence: And you can't get out of it! **

I propose that we call the hilariously impractical but clever apps, HOOT apps!

Or Kludges, like the original hacker/programmers.

That was such a good find I had to retweet that... and I hate tweeting.

That's stirred up reminicence of the good old days. I'm proud to see what the people are doing with Android. That's some pretty clever work.

Again Krispy, nice find. :wtg:
