    Default Windows 95 Running on Nexus One (Android)


    This is a video of Windows 95 running on the Nexus One (Android). Check it out after the break...
    <blockquote>As I've mentioned in the past, most Android phones are more powerful than my first few computers. The next logical step is running those desktop operating systems on our smartphone hardware. In this case, Microsoft Windows 95.
    File this under "Why? Because I can". There's really no utilitarian reason why one would want to do this, other than to say that they can.┬* Keep in mind that Windows 95 wasn't "touch friendly" so you'll have to tap and drag the mouse cursor around, and "clicks" are tricky because the pointer is so small.┬* Additionally, the screen resolution is set at 640x480 (which doesn't fill the screen), you're probably not going to be able to fire up Internet Explorer and surf the web, install printers, or install additional programs.┬* And remember, if you don't properly shutdown, the next time you go to boot up Windows 95 you'll be met with an old-school Scandisk, even on Android.</blockquote>
