I have tested quite extensively this distro and it holds real potential. It is much more performance consistent than a typical DosBox running on top of a normal operating system, with multiple apps and background processes. Graphics and CPU emulation speed is nearly on par with Windows DosBox classic.
The graphics output quality and input lag are both very good, which is important when you resort to emulation.
I noticed and I understand why the distro works like that. First of all the distro is TCE (Tiny Core Linux with Extensions). It is a good choice. As far as I looked into the repository it seems that no newer Dosbox was released for the platform. Although it is quite difficult to customize, the DosBox configuration can be modified as needed if you go into the archives and search for obvious clues. The most important improvement, however, is to make the implementation of a recent Dosbox such as Dosbox-X in this distro.
