16 Bit MS-DOS Subsystem

Hello,
I have a lot of really good software written for a 16 bit computer. Can one still buy a 16 bit DOS computer? If so...where?

  1. no, not really. but if you grab a PC with windows XP (32 bit) on it, it will run 16 bit applications without any issues (for the most part). no 64 bit systems will run 16 bit applications as support for it was deemed unnecessary by Microsoft. you could always create a bootable DOS disc, or partition a portion of your hard drive off and install DOS on it.
