QEMU

One of the things I miss since upgrading from Windows to Linux is one particular computer game. Though Debian GNU/Linux comes with many fine free computer games, and modern games are starting to appear for Linux, the one I wanted to play would not run under wine so I've not played it in over a year.

QEMU is a generic open source processor emulator, which can be used to create a virtual guest computer - of many possible types - onto which a whole new operating system can be installed. In my case I've been able to install Windows NT4, and the game I wanted into a virtual machine, and play the game perfectly well.
