Windows 95 on the iPad…WHY?!

by on April 11th, 2010

A few months ago, we saw a Windows 95 emulator released for the iPhone 3GS, in Cydia. It was a cool idea, but ultimately didn’t work very well, due to lack of power on the iPhone 3GS. It sometimes took 20 minutes to boot up, and even if it did boot up, it was barely useable.

The same folks who released that version, now have an iPad version up and running. With the iPad’s faster processor, and bigger screen, this now makes a little more sense.

My question is, why would anyone want this? Sure, it’s funny, but I don’t see any practical use for an outdated operating system, barely running, on the iPad.

Am I wrong? Feel free to comment below. Also, you can follow me Twitter, if you want: @rorypiper.

    I wouldn't bother installing this – sure it's got a humour factor, but I see no practical reason to install. Heck, I wasn't a fan of Win 95 when it was in it's prime.
