DOSEMU Alternatives

    DOSEMU is described as 'stands for DOS Emulation, and allows you to run DOS and many DOS programs, including many DPMI applications such as DOOM and Windows 3.1, under Linux' and is an app in the OS & Utilities category. There are seven alternatives to DOSEMU for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Android and Android Tablet. The best alternative is DOSBox, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like DOSEMU are vDosPlus (Free, Open Source), vDOS (Free, Open Source), DOSBox SVN Daum (Free, Open Source) and Magic Dosbox (Freemium).
