Fancy a $25 PC XT clone? With full Hercules graphics compatibility, peripheral support, and able to run MS-DOS and Windows 3.0? All you need is a Raspberry Pi, a C compiler, and 8086tiny
, the world's smallest full PC emulator. Clocking in at around 25k of source code, this marvel of modern science is yours to do with as you will. But wait, there's more - you get the full BIOS code _and_ binary thrown in! (Also runs on just about anything 32-bit, if you don't fancy a Pi).
If that's too big for comfort, a 4043 byte Obfuscated C version, winner of the 2013 ioccc championship, is also available.
