    Gaming:

    Want to play Wolfenstein 3D on Windows 10 / Linux ?
    I've tested a couple things that work even better than DosBox!

    I think these patches support Spear of Destiny as too ;)

  • ECWolf for Windows allows you to play Wolf3D on Windows 10, Windows 7 and Windows XP.
    Due to lack of a test machine I can't verify it to work on Windows 8 (but others say it does...).

  • Linux users will need to get Wolf4SDL in order to play Wolfenstein 3D natively.
    apt get usually works nicely for most distros ~ link is only for additional instruction.
    Also linking this archive (of the developer's) page [Chaos-Software] for reference.

    You will need your original Wolfenstein 3D game files for these to work.



    Operating Systems:

    Looking to make the change (from WinDoze) ??
    Well here's a couple of distros to get you started!

  • ReactOS has the look and feel of XP, 98 and 95...
    It's still under development and can handle software written for MS-DOS and Windows.
    Still in ALPHA DEV stages, but you may want to take it for a test drive.

  • Zorin OS is a Linux based alternative to Windows and macOS designed to make your computer faster, more powerful, secure, and privacy-respecting.

  • Damn Small Linux is a very versatile 50MB mini desktop oriented Linux distribution.

  • Install Damn Small Linux to a Flash Drive in Windows

  • Top Ten Reasons For Learning Damn Small Linux *Internet Archive - Snapshot!.

  • antiX is a fast, lightweight and easy to install linux live CD distribution based on Debian Stable for Intel-AMD x86 compatible systems.

  • Ubuntu is a complete desktop Linux operating system, freely available with both community and professional support.

  • Get Ubuntu Ubuntu is completely free to download, use and share.

    I will undoubtedly have more Linux links to share with you over the next few months.
    As for me... it will probably be a while before I settle with any particular Linux flavor
    since i like different things about all of the versions that I've tried so far.

  • Perhaps you'd like to try running Android on your old desktop PC?

    Simply the result of some DNS tinkering I tried back in 2003.
    Haven't been able to successfully point another subdomain there since!
