from the end-the-platform/OS-wars? dept
People have been playing with emulation for a long time, and it works to a certain extent, but it’s never a great solution (except when I feel like reliving the early 80s and play games on an Atari 800 emulator). Now, a company is claiming that they’ve created a system that will allow for any software to run on any hardware platform. A lot of people seem skeptical of the company’s claims, but they say they’ve been researching this stuff for years. Now they just need to figure out what they’re going to do to actually make money.

A couple of years ago I saw a product from a company called ARDI (based in Albuquerque, NM), which did the very same thing: allow Mac software to run on a PC; I downloaded a demo version they had and it was actually pretty fast. They did not ran all software, there was a list of programs that would run very well, well, not very well and not at all. It was not a short list. If I remember correctly their web site was http://www.ardi.com
