Windows 95 Runs on Android Wear Device

Believe it or not someone was able to sideload the Windows 95 operating system to run on Android Wear device, technology has become really advanced as the operating system that runs before on a desktop PC,  is now able to work in a smartwatch (somewhat).

The user Corbin Davenport used the ADOSBOX to install the Windows 95 OS, if you remember he is also the one who made the  Doom and Minecraft games to run on Android Wear.  Well the OS doesn’t have much function on the Gear Live smartwatch but it’s nice to see the Windows 95 come alive again on the next generation device. So far it is just a demonstration, it shows how far our technology has advanced in terms of hardware and software.

Windows 95 on Android Wear device

The Windows 95 on Android Wear device did not run smoothly as pointed out by Corbin, it lags and very slow, he also pointed out that the OS runs out of RAM after opening an application, but so far the menu works, and you can move the mouse pointer by just touching the screen.

So far if you want to see the Windows 95 again check out the video below by Corbin DavenPort.

    ok that is pretty slick, I was happy with just full tablet android on my watch, but this would be much better imo 🙂

    Writer on a technology based website doesn’t know the abbreviation for Operating System. Curious.
