Editors' Review

Suppose you're programming on a Pentium PC but need to test your software on an AMD Athlon. You could use a different workstation, or you could run Bochs, an open-source program for emulating x86 CPUs. Bochs communicates with floppy disks, network cards, COM ports, CD-ROMs, and even the sound devices of the computer it's hosted on. Despite Bochs's very detailed manual, setting up an operating system for a virtual CPU isn't as easy as it is with Virtual PC or VMware. You need to edit the configuration file manually. The good news is you can find ready-made disk images for FreeDOS, several Linux systems, FreeBSD, and Minix. Script kiddies should look elsewhere, but we wholeheartedly recommend Bochs to developers, ultrageeks, and computer-science students.
