Janes Longbow 1 was a dos flight sim (technical chopper to be specific) and would probably have a chance with DOS compatability or the option to boot to a dos environment (Is that still there, I used it last with winNT).
Janes Longbow 2 (still not replacable by any other chopper flight sim option that I've found) is pure GUI so I think a Dos box would be of little help since it's looking for the win95 graphic environment.
The othe game I'm going to have a go at getting to run is an old win95 Animaniacs game which is also a graphic environment.
Incase I'm mistaken though, is the DosBox option just a windows dos environment or is this something different that I may not have yet stumbled across?
Your comment to Rikk was well spoken. I suspect he started with the good intentions of pointing out true FUD against Windows when posted but if that was the starting point, he's digressed into the very troll he claims to have been responding too. I thought I simply taking things too personally when he lost credability in my view; I'm glad to know I'm not just being overly sensative.
And now for something completely different... (a man with three buttocks)
Rikk; don't get me wrong, I keep saying you post some great comments and that includes the "what's your network" discussion you started. As you say though "I call it like I see it" to which I still prepose that how "I see it" (er.. you see it) has been skewed by your own bigotry and personal mission to make life misserable for anyone who mentions anything FOSS without end notes, explicit references points and detailed statistical analysis including all calculating formula.
Now I'm still going to take each of your comments indavidually in an effort to not let my opinion of a seporate comment currupt the potential value of a current comment. Hostile comments, however, will be treated with the respect they show and are due as a result. You get what you give and I hope it's a load of great information where you give and verbal "curby" where you detract.
I hope Ubuntu continues to treat you well and I hope one day you get off your high horse and pull the MS pole of rage out of your @ss. You'll find that some of us heretics are actually very intelligent people with much information to offer and a much more open view of software than you give credit for.
