Not yet much usable. No DPMI or VGA/VESA emulation. Has problems with full screen apps. I tested a 16 bit version of vim, Robert's patched fed and MS Word 5.5 installer. Haven't had luck with either. First had problem with starting full screen, second required a dpmi host and the third crashed before even starting the install. Also, there is no way to change ntvdm settings, no pif files or right click ntvdm properties.

But I guess this would work with simple command line apps (although it's much better to use win32 versions if they exist).

Well, it's a start. :-)
