There is a reason people tell you that "nothings gonna work". :roll:

Exagear is probably the best you're going to get on the Pi.

Yup, nothing can beat Exagear but it will cost ;)

DOSBOX is ""free"" and can run Windows 3.1 and possibly Windows 95 (the non FAT32 / USB version), so yes x86 emulation is feasible but limited to older software....

....I believe DOSBOX can emulate around about a Intel DX4-100 ?

Yes it will work, but don't try anything after around 1993 (doom era)
