DOS Software and Emulators
The Internet can sometimes show us what the use of technology was like in the past. We talked about, for example, seeing what a page looked like a few decades ago. Today we are going to talk about some new tools with which we can use old operating systems. This may be curious for users who want to remember what it was like to use Windows 95, for example. Also for younger people who have never used it. All of this directly from our browser, without having to install any additional software.
Emulators to access old operating systems online
Once again, the Internet shows us a wide range of possibilities. Directly with our Browser, we can emulate the use of an old operating system. Logically we do not talk about starting Windows 7 from a Windows 10, for example. We refer to operating systems that some are already over 20 years old. They do not require many resources, and we can use them easily through Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
Perhaps many of our readers started using their first Windows 95 computers. We’re talking about an operating system that changed everything we knew so far. It came with a lot of new functions and unimaginable possibilities until that moment.
- Access Windows 95 online
Today we are talking about a completely disused operating system, logically. However, for the nostalgic, the curious and those who want to see what this operating system was like, they can still use it. Best of all, we need an internet connection and a browser. From our device, we can access a Windows 95 emulator.
The way to use it is effortless. We need to get into the emulator’s website. We will quickly see it begin to begin. By the way, it starts much faster than it did in those years on any computer.
A most recent choice is the Mac OS X 10.7. We will be able to make use of a relatively recent version of Mac and to test different tools and applications that it includes.
Best of all, we don’t have to install anything on our computer. Access the emulator and ready. By the way, to get in, you have to put the “admin” password.
It must be borne in mind that this time we are facing a re-creation and therefore, it is much more limited. We will not be able to have almost total control as if we were on an independent computer inside our browser. It is logical; we are talking about an operating system that is more recent and therefore needs higher minimum requirements.
- Mac OS System 7
But we can even go further back in time. This operating system, at least in my case, I never used it. It comes of Mac OS System 7. It was Mac’s central operating system for the 1990s. It started in 1991 and was not replaced until 1997.
Logically, we are dealing with a straightforward operating system. However, it is ideal for giving us an idea of what it was like to use a computer a couple of decades ago. We can even test simple programs and test imagination.
Again, we do not need to install any additional software. We have to have a browser and a computer with Internet access. We can enter this emulator on the corresponding page.
Those who want to see something much more basic, the beginnings of what would later be Microsoft Windows, can use the emulator to access PC DOS 5. The first IBM computer with this operating system was launched in the early 1980s, but the one we can use online is 1986.
It is indeed very curious to use such an old and simple operating system. Nothing we use today could work on these kinds of systems.
In this case, we will not be able to open the menu or applications this way, as we know. It is an operating system that worked through commands. Nothing to do with what we are used to today.
In short, these are some operating systems that we can” use ” directly from our browser through emulators. In the speed test, we wanted to show this to our readers so that they can see the possibilities offered by the network today.
The Internet has changed a lot in recent years. That’s obvious. The pages we saw just a few years ago have nothing to do with today. The same applies to internet connections. The speed we can have in our home today with ADSL or Fiber Optics has little to do with what was in the time of the operating systems we have shown, for example. Besides, if we look to the future, we will surely have emulators to access Windows 10 in a few decades, and we will be surprised at what it was like at that time.
