8086tiny: A tiny PC emulator in less then 25K of code!

Hamster tipped us off to this cool project in the forum. Coming in at less then 25K of C code this 8086 emulator still supports all the peripherals you would expect:

with support for PC peripherals including XT-style keyboard, floppy/hard disk, clock, and Hercules graphics. 8086tiny is powerful enough to run software like AutoCAD, Windows 3.0, and legacy PC games.

It will run Windows 3.0, old DOS games and of course MS-DOS 6.22. (I always preferred DR DOS, I bet it will run that too.)

I think we are going to need to talk to ZPUino expert Alvaro Lopes and see what he thinks about running this on the ZPUino!
