The BlackBerry PlayBook is beginning to show its hardware is capable of running just about anything. DOSBox was recently succesfully ported to the PlayBook. DOSBox is an piece of software that emulates an IBM PC compatible computer running MS-DOS.

Using DOSBox others (Thanks Lloyd!) were able to port Windows 3.11 while mounted. You can see an example of this in the image above. While it might not be the most practical of things, it is still intriguing that you can let the PlayBook run so many operating system environments. What will the PlayBook run next, OSX? Check out the video of DOS on the PlayBook below:
