iPad runs Windows 95, universe stays intact

Possible uses include: Checking your Compuserve account and reminiscing with Clippy about the good 'ol days

When it comes to iOS downgrading, most people talk about reverting to an older version of the operating system, like going from iOS 4 back to 3.2. The guy who posted this video to YouTube clearly has an entirely different definition.

YouTube user MSComputerVideos has posted a step-by-step video tutorial about how to get your iPad to run Windows 3.1 and 95. A warning to hipsters: Don't try this at home. You'll explode from the sheer irony of the situation.

Possible uses include: Checking your Compuserve account and reminiscing with Clippy about the good 'ol days, before colors went beyond 16-bit and the Internet was filled with pictures of lolcats.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
