Additional Comments

*This version of DOSBox can be useful to play that games that requires MS-Windows to run and are too old or yet incompatible with wine (those from DirectX5 era). *I recommend to use official versions of DOSBox to run games or applications that doesn't require windows. *I got almost the double of frames per second during benchmarks on this same machine, same ubuntu, but upgraded wine from 2.0.1 to 2.10, however, 3D graphics were glitched if double buffer was not enabled.
