File Contents

# Content
1 Bochs is a highly portable open source IA-32 (x86) PC emulator written in
2 C++, that runs on most popular platforms. It includes emulation of the
3 Intel x86 CPU, common I/O devices, and a custom BIOS. Currently, bochs can
4 be compiled to emulate a 386, 486, Pentium, Pentium Pro or AMD64 CPU,
5 including optional MMX, SSE, SSE2 and 3DNow instructions.
6
7 Bochs is capable of running most Operating Systems inside the emulation
8 including Linux, DOS, Windows 95/98 and Windows NT/2000/XP.
9
10 Bochs was written by Kevin Lawton and is currently maintained by the Bochs
11 project.
12
13 Bochs can be compiled and used in a variety of modes, some which are still
14 in development. The 'typical' use of bochs is to provide complete x86 PC
15 emulation, including the x86 processor, hardware devices, and memory. This
16 allows you to run OS's and software within the emulator on your workstation,
17 much like you have a machine inside of a machine. For instance, let's say
18 your workstation is a Unix/X11 workstation, but you want to run Win'95
19 applications. Bochs will allow you to run Win 95 and associated software
20 on your Unix/X11 workstation, displaying a window on your workstation,
21 simulating a monitor on a PC.
