Run Windows 95 On Your Palm Pre Plus

We have seen some truly amazing ports over the past few years here on XDA. Many are done in platforms that are being worked on by hundreds of devs on our site, so help and information is wide and abundant. But what happens when you have an OS like our latest addition (WebOS) where little development happens? The result is that from time to time you end up with shinning beacons of light that bring life back to these seemingly forgotten fora. XDA member TravisAntonio just became such beacon as he wrote a guide about being able to run Windows 95 on the Palm Pre Plus, which runs on WebOS. Needless to say, this is not truly a port, but the OS runs rather smoothly in the device with start up times as fast as 30 seconds, and all the goodies that you know (and probably miss) from the ancient Microsoft OS. So, if you wanted to have Windows on the “palm” (pun very much intended) of your hand, this is your chance. One word of advice is hat you will need to own a copy of Windows 95 or an image of the OS in order to make it work.

Please leave some feedback if you were able to get this to work. Keep in mind that this will only work on the Palm Pre Plus for the time being, so do not try it on older devices as this is currently being worked on by the dev.

 

  • 512MB Hard Disk
  • Games Included
  • Sound working perfect.
  • Boot time just 50 seconds (Can be 30 seconds or less but is better to take a lot because is more stable).
  • Winrar.
  • And more!.

You can find more information in the guide thread.
