Raspberry Pi: New operating system brings a Windows XP feel to the popular single-board computer and supports old video games
Fancy reliving the days of Windows XP, but hopefully without the crashes and instabilities? Well, now you can with Raspbian XP, a fork of Raspbian with a Windows XP overlay. Apparently, Raspbian XP has been designed for the Raspberry Pi 4, as it is the only version of the Raspberry Pi that is powerful enough to run the OS.
Featuring a start menu in its usual place, Raspbian XP also includes icons based on Microsoft's OS. PI LAB has incorporated modern improvements though, including integrating search functionality within the start menu.
While Raspbian XP cannot execute Windows programs natively, it does come preloaded with a Windows 98 emulator, along with other emulators like DOSBox and MAME. PI LAB has also published Raspbian 95, an overview of both you can watch in the embedded video below. PI LAB has included download links for both distros too, although it does stress that it is working to address a few initial bugs.
