All you folks talking about "windows this" and "windows that" - better check here:

(In short: flaky windows 3.x support at best - and that may not even be with the latest Amiga build...)

DOSBox is to run games, not the OS.

If you want to run MSwindows on amigaos4, you first have to port QEMU. This one works under linuxppc.

True, and what it works best for
I did some researching about installing Windows, found this:

Win 3.11 can be installed on it.
Win95 and upwards can't atm.
Win95 will start the installation but failt before it is done.

hundreds of Amiga games released in the 90's were also released for MS-DOS, some of them were enhanced with more colours, etc, and many of them are available here
