New version! - DOSBox is a DOS-emulator that uses the SDL-library which makes DOSBox very easy to port to different platforms. DOSBox has already been ported to many different platforms, such as Windows, BeOS, Linux, MacOS X...
DOSBox is an x86 emulator which creates a DOS-like environment intended for running MS-DOS-based IBM PC compatible programs, especially computer games, which may not run properly on newer PCs and may not run at all on non-IBM PC compatibles (e.g. PowerPC Macintosh). It also allows such games to be run on other operating systems that do not normally support DOS programs or run them too fast with normal compatibility layers. DOSBox is open source and available for many operating systems, such as Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Windows 9x, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Mac OS X, OS/2, Palm OS, RISC OS, and BeOS. It has also been ported to PlayStation Portable and the GP2X device.
Most noticeable changes:
Support for more graphics modes and cards.
Improved Vista support.
New OPL emulation cores.
Sound fixes and improvements for Mac OS X.
Lots of compatibility fixes.
Lots of cdrom detection improvements.
Lots of memory (EMS/XMS) improvements.
Various fixes and enhancements for the recompiling core.
Support for evdev.
Lots of DOS fixes.
