Windows 95 launched on Apple Watch

ОС Windows 95 запустили на Apple Watch (видео) Developer Nick Lee from Tendigi Studios decided to experiment with the Apple Watch and managed to port a full-fledged Windows 95 operating system to them. The technical specifications (520 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory) were quite enough for so that an outdated OS could function in a smart watch – at one time Windows 95 required more modest settings. To launch the brainchild of Microsoft in a smart watch from Apple, which does not allow installing any third-party operating systems on their devices, the enthusiast had to modify the proprietary software, and then turn Windows 95 into an analogue of the application. To prevent the watch from automatically entering sleep mode, which prevented the system from loading, Nick Lee created a mechanism that scrolled the Digital Crown wheel with the necessary frequency. The minus of the proposed modification, despite the fact that the Apple Watch is much more powerful than desktop PCs of the mid-90s, is the slow operation of the OS and the meager clock display – it is extremely difficult to control the cursor.
