WoW! You Can Now Run Windows 95 On Windows, macOS, And Linux

While you can run and use most programs and tools of the Windows 95 distribution, you will notice that some cannot be launched or don't work properly.

It's getting easier and easier to indulge in computing nostalgia, with the latest opportunity coming courtesy of a new Windows 95 app. The developer of the app has no rights to distribute Windows 95 like this, and I'm a little surprised that the app hasn't been yanked from GitHub yet. Recently, the revolutionary versions of Windows, of course, the tech giant Microsoft's Windows 95 has been transformed into a simple app (Electron app) that can run on Linux, Mac and even within Windows 10 itself.

Slack is a prime example of an app that is actually an Electron app, so it's perhaps no surprise that Slack developer Felix Rieseberg is responsible for turning everyone's favorite legacy operating system into something that can run nearly anywhere.

Available on GitHub, the app's source code and installers are free to download - with the app featuring the likes of Wordpad, phone dialer, MS Paint, and Minesweeper.

Trump Foundation, the president's nonprofit, which has been sued by the NY attorney general for alleged violations of state law. Mr Trump has repeatedly denied collusion with Russian Federation , and Russia denies involvement in the 2016 election.

Windows95 is a packaged copy of Microsoft's classic Windows 95 operating system that is running in an Electron application.

Old versions of Windows are sticking around longer than you might think, in unexpected places. It's Windows 95, sure, but some components don't work: Internet Explorer does nothing, nor does any other app that requires any kind of network access. After all these years, there were many innovations, integrated technologies and today we have a totally robust system that is probably the best operating system of the present time, the tech giant Microsoft's Windows 10. You can run old games, apps, or load files from disks that you integrate this way.

Users are also able to reset the Windows 95 instance if they encounter any problems when running it.
