Wine in OS.js (OS for legacy app for Windows)


Wine in OS.js

Wine can be embedded within OS.js ?

What about a new OS like windows?

This can be OSWine.js

This will be a OS for legacy app for Windows…


Unfortunately, something like this is not really possible.

However, using some form of video streaming you can technically interact with any application running on the host (or even remotely). OS.js has a Xpra library that you can do this with (though, it’s a work in progress).


Hi andersevenrud

I don’t understand this solution, more details please!


You can read about it here:

OS.js application here:


Thank You!


I bet we could create a custom app using js-dos with Windows 95. If anything it would be fun to try. Another option other than xpra would be something like guacd.


I did not know of js-dos. That looks really neat :slight_smile:


Steps to reproduce:

npm install -g create-dosbox

npx create-dosbox osjs-game-hhh #hhh = hugo's house of horrors

cp -R osjs-game-hhh </the/path/to/OS.js/>src/packages/osjs-game-hhh


Wow! That should be in a stable release, along with a v86 Buildroot VM that allows CLI file editing over 9p.
