This article was originally published in February 2018.
As part of our annual holiday shopping guide, we’ve put together a list of the best operating systems and operating systems simulator apps available for the Windows Phone platform.
We’ve also highlighted some of the more obscure apps available on the Windows Store, as well as the best apps for Windows 10 Mobile devices.
In the past, we have also written a guide for creating a virtual machine on Windows 10 and used it to create our own operating system on an ARM-based device.
However, since we’ve had a great experience creating our own virtual machine, we decided to write a similar guide for Windows 8.1.
In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps you need to take to create your own operating systems, operating systems simulators, and operating system simulators for Windows Phone.
Note: This is the final version of this guide, and there will be updates and additions to it over time.
First, download and install the Microsoft Office 2016 software.
Next, download Microsoft Office 2017 for Windows.

Choose the license option that best suits your needs.
