Windows 95 is a consumer-oriented graphical user interface-based operating system. It was released on August 24, 1995 by Microsoft[2], and was a significant progression from the company's previous Windows products. During development it was referred to as Windows 4.0 or by the internal codename Chicago.
Windows 95 integrated Microsoft's formerly separate MS-DOS and Windows products. It features significant improvements over its predecessor, Windows 3.1, most notably in the graphical user interface (GUI) and in its simplified "plug-n-play" features. There were also major changes made at lower levels of the operating system, such as moving from a mainly 16-bit architecture to a pre-emptively multitasked 32-bit architecture.
In the marketplace, Windows 95 was a major success, and within a year or two of its release had become the most successful operating system ever produced. It also had the effect of driving other major players in the DOS-compatible operating system market out of business, something which would later be used in court against Microsoft. Some three years after introduction, Windows 95 was succeeded by Windows 98.

Notes:
Microsoft Entertainment Pack disks are installed.
You know you want to try it!

Known issues:
besides the OS itself - none as of yet.
Don't expect memory and CPU intense apps to boot up properly.


enjoy (or not)

Hmm I wonder if one could port windows 3.1
Sure I can post that too if you want.
Besides the OS itself XD
genius
Thanks Doc.

This does not work for me I get an error.

looks like libfreetype.dylib is missing on your system setup. I expected it to be installed with OSX by default - maybe I was wrong or maybe you have a different version that has a different filename than what the app expects.

this probably helps:

not working for me.. but great try!
Ok I´ve updated the port and hopefully fixed the problem - everybody who's having problems with the previous version please redownload the app from the above link.
Re-downloaded - works without a hitch now, thank you.
I still get a message saying: Windows 95 cannot be opened because of a problem. etc. etc

do you know how I could fix this?
AWESOME!
it works! but how can i use the disc drive? is it possible to get extra stuff on there? and can you try windows 98 as well?
DOSBox can't emulate a DiskDrive in a Windows environment - just mount the win95.img inside the application package with Finder. ;)
I really like these projects! but I still get an error on this one. even the updated version... do you know what I could possibly try to fix this. this is my error window:

that error doesn't make sense - it looks like the app can't recognize libSDL-sound.dylib and reports it as damaged.

Try redownloading.
Oh wow it worked... that was easier than I thought!!
Really cool port!!! brought back many memories
