Hehe. Yeah, Minesweeper. Yay.Hector said:
Unlike WINE on Linux x86, DarWINE PPC is an emulator. It uses the open source QEMU emulation engine to execute x86 code.Hector said:
No, you can't. Windows apps are distributed as x86 binaries. You cannot run x86 binaries on PPC computers without emulation. Period.Hector said:i know, but you could skip the emulation layer all together, however complex that would be to do i dont know.
Actually, according to one of the developers this is not very easy.Hector said:
"won't run easily" has no techical meaning. Windows NT/PPC will either run or it won't run. Windows NT/PPC was meant to run on CHRP computers. The Little Endian PPC computer and the Big Endian PPC computer were the same. CHRP computers were intended to run MacOS, OS/2, Solaris, and Windows NT. The choice of OS was to be the user's.AdamR01 said:Actually, according to one of the developers this is not very easy.
"Windows NT/PPC won't run easily on a PPC Big Endian host since they are meant to run only on Little Endian PPC Hosts.*"
PowerPC processors can run in either mode. However, for backwards compatibility with the 68k processors (which can only run in big endian) Mac OS runs in Big Endian mode. I'm not an expert in the field but if it were possible to run, the performance penalty would be high.Hector said:cant it on a g4 as the g4 (and predecessors) run big and little edian code?
