It also adds new features, has improved stability, and improved performance.

OpenOSX WinTel ships with ten operating system disk images, including FreeBSD, REd Hat Linux, FreeDOS, and more. It is also capable of running Windows 95, 98, 2000, NT 4.0, and XP Professional.

OpenOSX Wintel 2.0 is available for download at the OpenOSX Web site, and is priced at US$25, or $30 on CD.
