Brandon8086 PC emulator written entirely in QuickBASIC!

I wrote an 8086 CPU emulator entirely in QuickBASIC, then added enough PC hardware support to allow it to boot DOS and run programs. It's called QB8086. I just wanted to see how well it could work.  I haven't tried it yet, but just the thought that it could  be done amazes me.

This is really quite impressive, particularly given how much of the hardware is emulated effectively enough to run those programs. I'm curious to know how much is passed on directly to the CPU, and also what the memory limitations are.
