Agreed ComradeP. Dosbox makes things easy for the ancient stuff, as do emulators...
However, from the win95 stuff onwards, it can be pure pain getting some of these games to work. This is another reason I am making more of an effort to get the old gaming crowd back together, and finding new people too, for some 'around the table' gaming. You can always make a board wargame work
Just as an aside, from all reports Windows 8 is a flop. Vista mk 2? I am now in a holding pattern, as I was going to jump straight from XP to 8, but have given that up, so will be looking to see if 7 is the new XP or merely an ME until the Next Big Thing arrives after Windows 8 is put out to pasture. The maker of 8 is already sacked after all...
Oh, and to keep on topic, very much looking forward to the patch..
