Classic operating system makes unexpected appearance on Microsoft's newest gaming console.

The program used is DOSBox, a virtual DOS app that among other things is able to run Windows 95th But before you start jumping high of nostalgia pleasure it may be worth pointing out that so far required a developer version of Xbox One to get into something like that. Using such, it is namely to install apps built for the Universal Windows Platform. In summer it is said that Microsoft will start allowing these apps to run on the Xbox One anywhere.
