Nintendo 3DS Windows 95

Sure, you can argue that there really is no practical reason to have Windows 95 running on a new Nintendo 3DS XL, but it's definitely a conversation starter. Back a while ago, I tried compiling the dosbox from libretro, and using retroarch to emulate dosbox. Yet, every time, it froze on a rainbow glitchy mess. So, I gave up for a while. Until tonight.

At its core, this is just libretro/retroarch dosbox. But I figured, hey, everyone wants Windows on their 3DS, right?," said Shutterbug2000 on the GBATemp forum.
