This is something you probably never thought would happen, but Windows 95 has successfully been ported to the Nintendo 3DS. Yes, there’s also video footage available to back up the claim which first started on the GBA Temp forums. It is by no means complete and it is nowhere near as speedy as your desktop OS, but it is a start!

    • Most of the video was just a loading screen. At about 1:10, Windows tried to access the C: drive and failed. It then reset to the loading screen for the rest of the video. It’s not a working port yet, but it’s better than nothing. I think that’s correct, anyway. I dropped I.T. after GCSE because it didn’t teach me anything.

  1. Why not something that actually maters… Like Android? This is still funny tough, but it’s so irrelevant. AIt feels like Android could be so much easier and optimiseable for this.

    • Android would run awfully on 3DS unless they ported one of the original versions of it. It probably wouldn’t fare much better on a New 3DS, either. Iirc there isn’t much RAM to go around, and as we all know, the 3DS doesn’t always handle its own OS smoothly. At least Windows 95 was used on utter dinosaurs XD

  2. Ported? Last time I checked, no one had either obtained the source code for Windows 95 or reverse engineered it. This is almost certainly being emulated by the 3DS using a port of QEMU.

                    • Why do you need of them? One Ares 901 is already fucking bad ass enough. I Know very little about the augments myself. But i know for sure that they have augments that work well on different types of enemies. For an example, on my lailah skell. I have augments on mechanical enemies hyper – blah – blah however you spell that fucking word. I have humanoid and I insects one on my ground gear. Whatever the hell type of monster the telethia and it’s brethren are, those type of augments should be used when going up against them.

  4. I guess my question is: What’s the possible point in running 20 year old software on a 3D machine anyway? Why not just find an old computer and put 95 on it? I probably have 3 or 4 around here that could be used.

  5. O_o Video evidence my ass.
    It spent over half the video sitting on the title screen and then the one attempt that was shown to actually open Windows failed.
    Yup, I’m convinced.

    What purpose would Windows serve on a 3DS anyway?
    I’m genuinely interested here but this tells squat.
