Running Windows NT 4 on MIPS on CollabVM is not recommended. While it is very cool to see and play with a non x86 Windows environment, it's not very usable - programs made for x86 Windows NT do not run, and there were virtually no commercial products made for Windows NT 4 MIPS. So, it is really more of a curiosity than a usable OS.

There are no USB 1.1 drivers for Windows NT 4 MIPS, so proper mouse alignment is impossible, but is not a big deal. <s>The bigger deal comes from the insane memory leaks that QEMU MIPS has when formatting the system partition. This memory leak is actually enough to bring a server with even 64 GB of RAM down to its knees in a matter of seconds.</s> '''UPDATE''': This was fixed in QEMU 2.9.0. If you want to host this, use QEMU 2.9.0 or above. Once you are booted into the OS, the memory leaks are no longer present - however, once QEMU is shut down, the OS has to be installed again (making an environment with Vote for Reset unfortunately impossible) as it is no longer present in the BIOS menu nor bootable.

If you'd still like to view or host a VM with this however, you are free to.
