DOSEMU stands for DOS Emulation, and is a linux application that enables the Linux OS
to boot any DOS and run DOS programs - including DPMI applications.
Ease: Installation is easy and you can launch programs just be double-clicking on them! Drives are not virtual but part of your drive(like Wine). The only problem, it's its very bugger and thins often don't work as expected. Some bugs have work around, others do not. Features: The purpose of this program appears to be as a Dos virtual machine. It is filled with features to do just that, it seems fast and responsive and can interface with the parrel and serail port on your computer if you have one(I have not tested this). It should be noted that this is NOT a Dosbox clone, Dosbox is meant to play dos games, while this program seems to be meant to run a whole dos enriment. It is only for x86 and executes the x86 instructions on your actual hardware so it is super-fast. Design: I'm not sure what is meant by this, I differently like the "design chooses" that went into this program and the direcation it seems to be headed in. I haven't looked at the source code so I can't rate that. Support: I haven't got responses to some of my tickets yet(though there are a lot of them so that is sort of understandable). I also don't think the mailing list works since I haven't got a response from anyone on there yet.
