This guy got Windows 95 running on an Apple Watch
Developer Nick Lee managed to get a fully functional version of Microsoft's classic Windows 95 operating system running on the Apple Watch.
Look and see for yourself:
In a Medium post, Lee explains how he did it. The short version is that he was able to figure out how to hack together a way for an Apple Watch app to load his custom code, circumventing Apple's safeguards.As Lee points out, the Watch packs more computing power in a little form factor than most computers of the nineties.
As a result, I was feeling confident that the Apple Watch had the ability to run one of the most revered desktop operating systems Redmond has ever produced," Lee writes on Medium.There's a huge catch here: It takes an hour to boot up Windows 95 on the Apple Watch. Still, if you were ever dying for Windows on your wrist, here's your big chance. Lee has a history of playing games with Apple: In 2010, when he was 15, Lee tricked Apple into allowing his app "Handy Light" into the App Store - an app that looked like a flashlight, but actually let you connect a laptop to your iPhone to get it online.
