    With the keyboard and Mouse usable these day. Anyone know if a port of a X86 EMU so I can run XP lets say or Windows 98?
    There are some old games I wouldn't mind playing again like
    X-Com, Mission Thunderbolt, or the myriad of oldies but goodies game. Heck even Office 2003 or 98 would be useful.

    the only pc emu available is Dosbox as far as i know and it is a dos emu
    Atleast on the PC Version you can run Win 3.11 just fine and even 95 an 98 but the last two dont work very well. The playbook version works great but i think it lacks full mouse support but i havent tried running any version of windows on it yet.

    I gues for windows emulation another emu like bochs or qemu would be the best i think.

    Virtual Machines like VirtualBox which is opensource and gives very good results wont work on the playbook arm archiceture, all those VirtualMachines depend on a x86 CPU in the host system.

    Splashtop HD allows you to remote your PC on your Playbook. It runs pretty well.

    Remote desktop would be the best solution
