The following is the story behind this:
I got bored so I decided to see how many different OSes I could get running at once.
From left to right mostly:
- MS DOS 6.22
- Windows 1.01
- Windows 2.03
- Windows 3.1
- Windows for Workgroups 3.11
- Windows NT 3.51
- Commodore 64
- Windows 95
- Windows NT 4
- Microsoft Bob
- Windows 2000
- Windows XP
- Windows Vista
- OS/2 Warp 4
- BeOS R5
- Windows 8
- Windows 98
- Windows ME
- MacOS 9.0.4
- MacOS X 10.2 Jaguar
- MacOS X 10.8 Mountain Lion
- Blackberry 10
And of course a Windows 7 host.
I had to run Windows 98 and Windows ME in Virtual PC since they were really difficult (I gave up) to get going in VirtualBox. I also had to disable Aero and turn almost everything off, borrow RAM from my girlfriend’s computer, as well as her monitor.. And tweak some services in Vista and Windows 8 to slim them down enough to run all of these at once.. I should probably get more than 4GB of RAM and a Core 2 Duo if I want to add any more..
Once I heard a saying “the simple minded are easily amused”. But I’d hardly call this guy, a person that is able to run 28 operating systems simultaneously on a computer with just 4GB of RAM, simple minded.
