We're going off-topic here, so I suggest you drop by the 86Box IRC or Discord servers with any problems you might have.

http://dosbox-x.com/ is a DosBox fork with enhanced stability for running late DOS/early Windows software. But it is not an emulator either and 1980s software might act quirky.

86Box is relevant, yes? It runs very early Windows.

I meant that 86Box support talk is offtopic, which it is.

I'll agree that VirtualBox is garbage.
Why? Whats wrong with it? Im running Windows 2000 on it without a SINGLE issue.

Anyways i'd recommend 86box. Its quite complex to set it up, but when you do, its easy to use it.
