Dosemu has a hybrid approach. On x86, vm86 is used. On systems lacking
vm86 (that is most notably x64), full-blown CPU emulation (either
interpreting or a JIT compiler) is used instead. 32 bit protected mode
programs can run natively on x86 and x64, but emulation is also
available as an option in protected mode.

emulatiopn code)
