Choosing an smx86 Version

The real-mode version of smx86 is intended for users who are using 8086, 186, or equivalent processors or who do not have large applications and do not need the protection mechanisms of 386-class processors. smx86 is also used for running with DOS. Real mode is often attractive because it is simple and well understood. Also, debugging can be easily performed in a DOS environment on the host machine. Often, projects are upgrading from 186 to 386-class processors simply to gain performance, not to gain increased memory. In such cases it makes sense to stay with real mode.
