stability and ground breaking improvements of Bochs 1.2.
Bochs 1.3 includes many major enhancements including a powerful menu-based
configuration system and networking support for Linux and Windows NT/2000. Other
additions in this release include support for ISO-format disk images, improved
mouse performance, physical CD-ROM support for all versions of Windows, parallel
port emulation, enhanced debugger, and many cpu and device model improvements. Bochs
1.3 also adds native support for Mac OS X and Amiga MorphOS, along with improved
support for BeOS. You can find Bochs binaries for Windows and Linux (along with the
source code for UNIX, Linux, Windows, and Mac OS) at


Bochs is the most popular open source x86 emulator available today. Bochs
compiles on a number of platforms including UNIX(R) and UNIX-like systems, Windows,
and MacOS.
Bochs can be used for many purposes such as running Windows on other
platforms, trying a new operating system without repartitioning your system, and
operating system debugging. You can learn more about Bochs at
