But the real reason why this “Windows XP in a browser” starts so fast is that it is not real operating system emulation. It is just very good and very clever website that makes it appear that you are using Windows XP. When you visit this website, it tells you to press F11 to switch to the full-screen mode and trick your friends in using your computer. Everything that is already open work as they should – web browser, a small Tetris game, Minesweeper and Winamp.
The prank part kicks in when you try to use anything other than these open windows. For example, if you try to open “My Computer” to access the hard drive contents. It will suddenly display BSOD (blue screen of death) which should panic anyone who was trying to use Windows XP in the web browser. Before you have time to think, the Dell computer reboots and starts to format the hard drive. After format is complete, you are shown some options for creating a new partition and more fun ensues.
