Desktop app developer Felix Rieseberg made headlines late last week by turning Windows 95 into an Electron app. You can find the code on GitHub, this project enables you to run this old operating system as an app on Windows, Linux, and macOS. In a follow up on Twitter, he revealed he added support for CTRL+ALT+DEL as well as the ability to mount the disk drive (so you can put files in).

Alternatively, if you want to mess around with Windows 95 or other operating systems, you can check Virtual x86. That website lets you run Winows 1.01, Windows 95, FreeBSD 10.2, Windows 98, Linux 2.6, Linux, 3.18, MS-DOS 6.22, and other operating systems straight from your browser!
