One of the great things about the openness of Android is that some enterprising tinkerers will always come up with some cool, if useless, scenarios. If you want a perfect example of this, check out Eric Tate using the Nexus One to run Windows 3.11.

You’ll need an Android device capable of running aDOSBox, a Bluetooth keyboard, a computer and a few pieces of software. Why you’d want to do it is between you and your sick obsession with tech.
The nearly-20-years-old Microsoft OS appears to run smoothly, which shouldn’t be a surprise considering what kind of hardware the Nexus One is packing. If you want, try it out for yourself and let us know how it is.
