5 We've been using DOS Emulators for years, and we've been using DOS since the 80s. This is by far the best DOS Emulator we've ever seen on ANY platform.

5 Great utility for older games. Even some Steam packages use Dosbox to run their older games on newer systems. Fantastic.

5 It's actually easier to get my games working through DosBox than it was in MS-DOS itself (because of all the memory management fiddling). For easy installation, I've repackaged my old games in .deb files that depend on DosBox.

5 Brought up on DOS, I dont use a front end, just type the commands. Use it to play Civilisation only so far. As PC architecture evolved, the game fell over sooner and sooner. Dosbox has equalled my ancient 386 in terms of ability to play, allowing far bigger empires to be built etc. Still manage to make it crash. Misspent youth. Looking forward to testing some of the newer 'old games'

5 i was able to look at of the first things i ever coded for CHaoS an ansi art group. It looked like a animated gif and it was 3 or 5 of them and a .MOD track playing using that module that was everywhere for turbo pascal that gave you the choices of Soundblaster Adlib Gravis etc. The lead coder told me 1 file only no zips etc so I appended .mod with copy and simply extracted it at runtime. It was the first solution i discovered without being taught or copying another idea. I was 13 and I still think it was krad. Maybe we can get this in the old folks home in 20 years.

5 Big fan of DosBox. A little MSDOS knowledge is required for set up, but it's pretty simple ad straightforward to get old games running. I use it for old text adventures, like The Pawn, so in my view this is a vital tool for preserving old games.

5 Couldn't praise this any more highly. It runs 99% of old DOS games thrown at it with no trouble at all. I do recommended using a frontend with it.

5 dosbox makes up 70% of my game play. classics like doom1&2, quake, wolfenstein 3d, duke nukem 3d, kings quest, etc. make dosbox indespensable for retro pc gamers.

5 DOS was the base for what we take for granted. Fast applications and also the limited but clever games. This is a must for what DOS have allowed and delivered.

4 Great DOS emulator, but sadly the Linux version has some issues, e.g. with some sound emulation. Still best choice to play the games that are worth playing them.
