User Reviews

  • DOSBox is a great emulator. It can be used in both educational and nostalgic purposes.

  • History Logo of VirtualBox OSE, 2007–2010 VirtualBox was initially offered by Innotek GmbH from Weinstadt, Germany under a proprietary software license, making one version of the product available at no cost for personal or evaluation use, subject to the VirtualBox Personal Use and Evaluation License (PUEL).[13] In January 2007, based on counsel by LiSoG, Innotek GmbH released VirtualBox Open Source Edition (OSE) as free and open-source software, subject to the requirements of the GNU General Public License (GPL), version 2.[14] Innotek GmbH also contributed to the development of OS/2 and Linux support in virtualization[15] and OS/2 ports[16] of products from Connectix which were later acquired by Microsoft. Specifically, Innotek developed the “additions” code in both Microsoft Virtual PC and Microsoft Virtual Server, which enables various host-guest OS interactions like shared clipboards or dynamic viewport resizing. Sun Microsystems acquired Innotek in February 2008.[17][18][19] Oracle Corporation acquired Sun in January 2010 and re-branded the product as "Oracle VM VirtualBox".[20][21][22] ...off course preferred BOCHS hehe...even less device resources allowed but DOSBOX IS A WONDERFULL SHARING....or trade 2....for weak people.

  • Fantastic! I freaking love DOSBox.

  • Runs the most of DOS games and utils. Sometimes it's not easy to define parameters in a .bat file for software that requires special settings. A manual will be useful.

  • Issues: After the command "make" on Linux Mint 18.1 Makefile:403: recipe for target 'cpu.o' failed make[4]: *** [cpu.o] Error 1 make[4]: Leaving directory '/home/antonionero/Downloads/dosbox-0.74/src/cpu' Makefile:423: recipe for target 'all-recursive' failed make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[3]: Leaving directory '/home/antonionero/Downloads/dosbox-0.74/src/cpu' Makefile:436: recipe for target 'all-recursive' failed make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/antonionero/Downloads/dosbox-0.74/src' Makefile:377: recipe for target 'all-recursive' failed make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/antonionero/Downloads/dosbox-0.74' Makefile:318: recipe for target 'all' failed make: *** [all] Error 2
