    x86 virtualization in your browser, recompiling x86 to wasm on the fly

    It can indeed run some real windows programs via BoxedWine. I've set it up so you can double click an .exe and it will automatically try and run it, although typically if it needs support dll's then they are all in a zip. For example the zip file for Notepad++ 32-bit x86 can directly run in BoxedWine. You just drag the zip file on, right click and select run in BoxedWine. It can also run DOS apps/games via JS-DOS and has similar mappings for exe/zip. Both emulators make use of WASM as do several other apps, such as the x86 emulator shown in the demo video. My main "OS" is only JS/HTML/CSS written in TypeScript with React/Styled Components.

    Desktop environment in the browser.

    Hi, thanks for the question. My long term plan is to recreate a lot more. I focused on apps and general system experience but 2022's plans involve more settings/customization. That being said I am not totally sure what settings I will put on there. Everything possible ideally. Currently you can set the wallpaper via right clicking an image, you can change some settings via directly editing `/session.json` also. There is still work to do indeed, feel free to add Issues (https://github.com/DustinBrett/daedalOS/issues) with suggestions for what you'd like to see.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • awesome-web-desktops

    Websites, web apps, portfolios which look like desktop operating systems

    Ah, my first experience with these "Web Desktops" was with AaronOS. After digging, some digging I was inspired by a few others that I felt went beyond the visual copying and tried to make some kind of underlying system, which I thought was a cool idea to work on. The others were Windows 93 , [https://www.os-js.org/]( & [https://windows96.net/](. There are some good collections of various OS's, if you are interested: - https://github.com/syxanash/awesome-web-desktops - https://github.com/zriyansh/awesome-OS

  • tauri

    Build smaller, faster, and more secure desktop applications with a web frontend.

    I miss something easy like this for C/C++ but we got https://github.com/tauri-apps/tauri as a much lighter electron alternative with webview for Rust. It's a start.
