Chinese hacker proves iPhone 6 Plus was made for running Windows 98

iPhone 6 is much faster, and its display is ways better than any computing hardware we had back in 1998. Computing has changed so much, yet Windows 98 is as vintage Microsoft as it gets - teal wallpaper, gray windows, and massively cryptic error messages. Oh well, at least it has a working Start menu!We got to say, it's a beautiful sight, in a way. The
Now, we are clueless as to what the Chinese hacker did to run this piece of desktop history on the iPhone 6 Plus, but reportedly, he used a legal version of iDOS, which probably does a fine job at emulating an ancient PC. So there's that. Meanwhile, you should check out Windows 95 running on a Samsung Gear Live smartwatch if you missed it! As for us, we'll be busting some Solitaire while keeping any Chinese guys away from the microwave, lest they install Windows ME on it!

If you wanted big you had to get a 17 inch monitor. Though I am sure you are speaking of a time when 17in was still just fantasy. I remember getting my 17in crt though and thinking it was huge.

I am surprised that no one has installed Android on an iPhone or IOS on an Android flagship yet. It seems like companies are good at locking that down. Probably because Apple knows IOS cheats on benchmarks like crazy and can't afford to let the cat out of the bag.

And fact is that iOS and Apple processors are just designed to work with each other. Bit like Nissan GT-R with it's transmission, engine, chassis and all those computers inside working together (sorry car analogy).

I could've sworn I've seen stories about people putting Android on an iPhone in the past. And we've all seen just about every OS running on the old HTC HD2. But I agree I've never seen iOS running on anything other than an iPhone.

"F#%king Windows 98!" from South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut. That was my startup sound file on my Windows 98 machine back in the day. It was great because it played right when the Windows 98 image showed on the monitor. Good times.

"He even enabled Chinese menus!" - Luis D. Why state the obvious? The hacker is from China. You expect him to enable Spanish menus? "As for us, we'll be busting some Solitaire while keeping any Chinese guys away from the microwave, lest they install Windows ME on it!" And I love your anti-Chinese sentiment. Good job, PA!

How is anything he said Anti-Chinese? He made a joke, hold on to your panties, about a guy who just installed Windows 98 on an iPhone. Oh, and the guy happened to be Chinese. It's called comedy. I got a chuckle out of it. I don't think he really thought anyone would install Windows Me on a microwave. And besides everyone knows that only a Korean could figure out how to do that. This world was a much more enjoyable place to live before you politically correct A-holes took away everyone's fun.
