Microsoft would have you believe that it requires a professional or Ultimate edition of Windows 7, but apparently it works just fine on Home Premium. I haven't tried it, its free now according to the article. Does that mean I could install a Copy of Windows 95 and use DOS? Or would my machine be too quick?
Or is just easier to use Dos Box? I bought Master of Orion 2 from GoG.com last week, it's using Dos Box to run.
