If you are a fan of blocks and your desire to build knows no limits, you may want to try the latest madness they have developed for Minecraft. It is a mod called VM Computers that allows us to create a virtual machine within the game, where we can install Windows 95 and even run a version of Doom, the classic '90s shooter.

Thus, we will see how a satellite that is orbiting around us is giving us the necessary pieces to complete the project and have a beautiful computer with its monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc.

This mod uses VirtualBox, a free and open source software to create virtual machines, and run operating systems like Windows 95.
