They could buy Codeweavers and use Crossover to run legacy Windows apps.

First genetically enigneered virus designed to kill antibiotic resistant bacteria used successfully in a human subject

Isabelle Holdaway, 17, nearly died after a lung transplant left her with an intractable infection that could not be cleared with antibiotics. After a nine-month stay at Great Ormond Street hospital, she returned to her home in Kent for palliative care, but recovered after her consultant teamed up with a US laboratory to develop the experimental therapy.

The scientists behind the breakthrough have said bacteria-killing viruses, known as phages, have the potential to be used as an alternative treatment to counter the growing crisis of human resistance to antibiotics.

So, apparently British Columbia police have started using a new device for roadside "drugs" tests. Only thing is..

* it tests positive for poppy seeds (eg cake, bagels)
* it can't differentiate between CBD and THC
* it stops working entirely below -4C

Good job, guys!

I found the Windows 95 sheep redone for Windows 10. And it supports multiple monitors \o/
