Welcome to Freeware Home

FreewareHome is a collection of links & information for freeware Windows programs for PCs

Commercial programs like Office or AutoCAD are not only expensive but probably overkill for most people. We aim to find the best, feature-rich, totally free programs for you. Many of them are actually even better than their expensive commercial counterparts, FreewareHome is the one place you really can find a free lunch!

Due to a disastrous server crash in early January we are in the process of rebuilding FreewareHome, we'll have new content almost every day so keep coming back!

Bochs

Program: Bochs Version:2.6
Author: The Bochs Project
Website: [ http://bochs.sourceforge.net/ ]
Download: [ 4.9 MB ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: Bochs is a highly portable open source IA-32 (x86) PC emulator written in C++, that runs on most popular platforms. It includes emulation of the Intel x86 CPU, common I/O devices, and a custom BIOS. Bochs can be compiled to emulate many different x86 CPUs, from early 386 to the most recent x86-64 Intel and AMD processors which may even not reached the market yet. Bochs is capable of running most Operating Systems inside the emulation including Linux, DOS or Microsoft Windows. Bochs was originally written by Kevin Lawton and is currently maintained by this project. Bochs can be compiled and used in a variety of modes, some which are still in development. The 'typical' use of bochs is to provide complete x86 PC emulation, including the x86 processor, hardware devices, and memory. This allows you to run OS's and software within the emulator on your workstation, much like you have a machine inside of a machine. For instance, let's say your workstation is a Unix/X11 workstation, but you want to run Win'95 applications. Bochs will allow you to run Win 95 and associated software on your Unix/X11 workstation, displaying a window on your workstation, simulating a monitor on a PC.
