In the old days, and still occasionally these days, id Software’s original Doom game has been the litmus test of whether something is worthy to be called a computer or not. It has been installed on ATMs and even the MacBook’s Touch Bar, proving the case. But how about playing Doom on an OS running in a browser running on an OS running on a computer? Well, you can do that now, too, thanks to version 2 of Felix Rieseberg’s Windows 95 Electron app.
“windows95 v2.0” is available for free and will run on Windows, Mac, and even Linux, thanks to Electron’s cross-platform support. Given the legal minefield the app is treading on, however, it might not last that long.
