Just wondering if it is possible to run Windows software in Linux like
one was able to do it under OS/2 (16-bit win apps).  Or a Windows 95
emulator for Linux.  If so where?  Thanks.

There is a x86 emulator (not win95 emulator) that you can find at
http://world.std.com/~bochs

I have tested it with Dos/Minix under Linux, it works good, but it is
*very* slow. According to Bochs, you can even install Win95 (??) on Linux,
and vis-versa (??).

See also Wine (most likely what you need), Wabi & DOSEMU.

To run most 16-bit Windows applications, look into WABI.  This is
commercial software that is available from Caldera (www.caldera.com).

Wine (www.winhehq.com) and TWIN (www.willows.com) will run a fair
amount of 16-bit and 32-bit Windows programs but as of a few months ago,
had poor font management which made them difficult to use.

Runs many but not all 16 bit Windows applications.

Or try Wine. Is still alpha, but some programs do work; looks very
promising, and there is already generic win32-support. I am afraid that
the only stable solution to run (16bit) Windows-Software ist still Wabi.
I think it's sold by Caldera (and S.u.S.E., afaIk) and needs a Windows 3.x
to work. The disadvantage is that Sun (they made it, did they ?) is not going
to continue the project. So there will never be a 32bit-Wabi :-(

1. X-windows terminal emulator for Windows 3.1

Can anyone recommend a good terminal emulator package for accessing the
x-windows environment from a PC/windows 3.1 platform?  Access will be via
token ring card into a network of Digital Alpha stations running OSF/1.

Thanks,

Wayne B
