Watch this Samsung Gear Live run the Windows 95 operating system

We’ve seen some smartphones and tablets running full-fledged desktop operating systems but this is something really phenomenal. Corbin Davenport, a YouTube user has posted a video of the Android Wear powered Gear Live running Windows 95 operating system. Looking at the video, we can say that the experience of using Windows 95 is too far from pleasant but it ran quite fast until Davenport tried to open an app, after which the smartwatch ran out of RAM.

One thing to be noted here is that, the Gear Live smartwatch isn’t running Windows 95 directly, but through a DOS emulator called aDosBox which is available for free on Android. Last week, Davenport published a video of Gear Live running DOOM, a famous PC game which was released back in 1993.
