Emulating x86: Microsoft builds granny flat into Windows 10

Well actually, back when that Windows software was written 640x480 was an OK resolution with 1024x768 being about the maximum you can get.

If Microsoft was to either find a way to rearrange GUIs so they fit on those tiny screens, or bring out a mobile device with keyboard and pen, those software packages would be useful again.

Also there's a lot of software packages around for Win32 which are still maintained. They could still adapt the GUI without changing the rest of the system. This would give those applications a bridge.

Furthermore there's also quite some Win32 stuff, like VPN clients, which do not really need a GUI.
