This is Windows 95, running in an Electron app. Yes, it's the full thing. I'm sorry.

Does it work?

Yes! Quite well, actually - on macOS, Windows, and Linux. Bear in mind that this is written entirely in JavaScript, so please adjust your expectations.

Should this have been a native app?

Absolutely.

Does it run Doom (or my other favorite game)?

You'll likely be better off with an actual virtualization app, but the short answer is yes. Thanks to @DisplacedGamers I can recommend that you switch to a resolution of 640x480 @ 256 colors before starting DOS games - just like in the good ol' days.

Before you can run this from source, you'll need the disk image. It's not part of the repository, but you can grab it using the

Show Disk Image
button from the packaged release, which does include the disk image. You can find that button in the
Modify C: Drive
section.

Unpack the

images
folder into the
src
folder, creating this layout:
- /images/windows95.img
- /images/default-state.bin
- /assets/...
- /bios/...
- /docs/...

Once you've done so, run

npm install
and
npm start
to run your local build.
