With DOSBox, an emulator for the DOS operating system, you can execute programs and games that belong to this already mythical platform. It emulates 286 and 386 processors in real and protected modes.
It supports a variety of video modes which are characteristic in this operating system, like Hercules, EGA, VGA, and VESA, among others.
It is also possible to emulate the functioning of both audio devices like the system speaker, Sound Blaster, Adlib, Tandy, or Gravis Ultrasound; and a modem under TCP and IPX networks.
DOSBox will make you look the old MS-DOS commands over, since all operations are carried out through the instructions of this operating system.
