Developer Releases Windows 95 OS as an App For Windows 10, macOS and Linux

Mark Wycislik-Wilson, writing for BetaNews: Last year, developer Felix Rieseberg released Windows 95 as an Electron app to let 90s computer users relive their younger years. Now he’s back with a second version of the Windows 95 app, and it’s even better than ever — gaming classics such as Doom and Wolfenstein3D are now included, for starters! Based on the Electron framework, Windows 95 2.0 is written in JavaScript, and is essentially a 500MB standalone virtual machine. The original release was lacking in a number of areas — such as no sound or internet access. This second release is described as a “big update” and includes a web browser in the form of Netscape Navigator 2.0.
