updated 11:30 am EDT, Tue October 5, 2010

Windows running on the iPad

Filemaker has announced that its Bento Template Exchange service has reached a new milestone, passing 500,000 downloaded templates, while a new video guide detailing how to install Windows on an iPad has been posted to YouTube

Filemaker has announced that more than 500,000 free templates have been shared through the Bento Template Exchange since its launch in June 2009. By accessing the Bento Template Exchange users can browse through, download, and import templates from 15-different categories. The service also gives users the opportunity to upload their own templates to share with others. The Template Exchange currently includes over 700 different template that are designed for a variety of uses, ranging from sales management to teacher lesson planning and simple home inventory. In addition, templates found through the service can be used with Bento for iPhone and Bento for iPad if they are synched with Bento 3.

Windows 3.1 and 95 running on jailbroken iPad

YouTube user MSComputerVideos has posted a new video tutorial that shows users how to run Windows 3.1 and 95 on an iPad. The Windows OS runs within a virtual environment in iOS, but is fairly limited in functionality, providing no Wi-Fi or sound support. The emulator also lacks a virtual keyboard for typing. The video provides step-by-step instructions on installing both operating systems, including a few modifications that are meant to improve speed, however it is apparently that the software is still quite slow and mostly unusable.
