I don't have XP or a Mac (I have 98), but I'm looking into buying a PC with XP. And I can't live without my DOS. What are the best emulators out there?

Oh, and I was wondering if DOS clients with scroll bars exist. Do they?

For sound? Um...Yeah. It couldn't even complete the "TEST SOUND OPTIONS" and "TEST MUSIC OPTIONS" in Descent without bubbling as crackling.

It emulates a 7MHz 486 at best, I believe.

What programs do you NEED to run that are DOS?

You can always configure the system to dual-boot. Run Win98 + WinXP on the same system. You just need a different partition to install XP onto.

And you see, that's why I'm gonna get a DOS emulator. I have no idea what you're talking snout.
