RE: Running SoftWindows 95 in IRIX
Here's a side by side comparison between the standard Doom that you get with IRIX and Doom95 running in SoftWindows:

Doom95 is way superior and it runs extremely well!

I've just loaded DoomII.wad into Doom95 and it's running perfectly under SoftWindows 95:

FWIW: SoftWindows95 v4.0 is considered more stable and faster than v5.0

Does it still have the same features like resizable window changing the resolution?

It would be interesting to run some benchmarks between these two.

What's the reason for version 4.0's increased stability and speed?

I've noticed that you can't update drivers such as your DirectX drivers without problems. (wouldn't version 5.0 therefore have better compatibility with certain programs?)
