    I have a few MS DOS programs which I am able to run using MS Widows XP operating system.

    Does anyone know if Droid has developed application allowing running MS DOS programs?

    Android DosBox

    aDOSbox - it's an Android port of the PC app DOSbox. It's early alpha code, but runs some things pretty well. I actually had Windows 3.11 running on my Droid. Not very well, but running.

    You need a physical keyboard currently to run aDOSBox if I understand correctly.

    Does anyone know any of the devs working on this project? I would LOVE to play Master of Orion II, Duke Nukem, and X-COM to name a few . . .

    That's great...MOO II is actually what I WANT to play, but it just runs too slow on aDosBOX right now. :-(

    I hope they update it soon. I've been playing Angband (an old ASCII DOS game) that someone ported to Android and put in the market, so my hopes are high.
