Windows on NES !!
Have you ever wanted to run Microsoft Windows on NES? Well of course not!
The following versions of Windows exist for NES:
However, the bootleggers could not hear you out on that and did it anyway.
The reason for these fake operating systems existence is probably to provide keyboard famiclones with fake operating systems.
Some famiclones (fake illegal bootlegged hardware clones of the NES) pretended to be computers.
These would feature keyboard, mouse and controller. Some would even feature a floppy disk drive.
The software would usually be stored on ROM cartridge.
So why don't we take a look at them:
Starting with Chinese Windows 2000:
A picture of the desktop
Start menu tells you that this is supposed to be 2000
Both of them feature a command prompt. It is also here that the famiclone keyboard come in handy.
The DOS prompt is fully functional
Interestingly this card game looks like a Windows 3.1 application. Even though this is supposed to be Windows 2000.
Both original and bootleg feature a working calculator. (Works with keyboard)
The bootleg features BASIC
Features Photoshop that doesn't open
The original has the best version of MS Paint as the bootleg variant doesn't even work.
The bootleg MS-DOS prompt doesn't even work :(
They couldn't even program a FUCKING CALCULATOR !! Well.. to be fair the original gets 9+10 wrong.
Surprisingly the Nintendo version is better at displaying web pages. Who would have thought!
Educational Computer 2000
Comparison between Educational Computer 2000s desktop and the one of Windows 2000
It features system properties (Some weird shit happened to the Win 2000 screenshot)
It has Word and IT'S WORKING !!
This one also has a command prompt
The DOS prompt actually works! I even launched the application below from the DOS prompt
It features various 8-bit renditions of old songs. (This is the application i started from the DOS prompt)
A help program that will tell you the name of the PC component you click on
This did not want to run
Russian Windows 2000:
Minesweeper is also included !! [TODO: Add screenshot of win 2000 minesweeper]
How the FUCK are you supposed to doge all those bombs !!
A window with programs
The bootleg features two different versions of basic
Bootleg Excel (Still better than the real deal) Features drop down menus
Wait! You can connect this rom to your computer
This version of paint sucks
It features a fake CD-ROM that plays some nice tunes
The calculator works
