Use your HTC EVO 3D to run Windows 95/98/XP and Linux

Windows-server[1]If you've ever had the need to access a Windows or Linux OS from your phone, you've been generally been limited to using products like Remote RDP or Splashtop Remote to access a computer that is turned on and connected to the internet.

Well, as you may remember from our post about being able to install Ubuntu on your HTC EVO last year, you can run other desktop OSes natively on your phone too.

The HTC EVO 3D is capable of running older desktop systems, and while the reasons you would need to run a desktop OS on your phone are probably few and far between, it's an option that's available should you ever need it.

As with any desktop OS running on a phone, it is a hair-pulling experience to do and riddled with annoyances such as having to create a disk image of the OS you're installing, install it, and of course lean in close to see a comparatively tiny little screen.

But, if you've got an irresistible itch to pull out some of your childhood games and attempt to play them on your phone, or if you're running a hideously outdated application that you should hire a developer to update, the link below should get you up and running.
