Has anyone actually purchased any of these yet?  I am very vurious about the technology behind it, especially for King’s Quest 6.  As I’m sure most of you are aware that is a real pain to get working on Windows XP.  I’m not sure if it works on Vista but it sure won’t work on Windows 7. 

I e-mailed the GOG team to ask what they do to get them running on modern computers.  Is it an emulator?  A modified installer?  Or is the game somehow re-coded?  The response was “we don’t give away are secrets”. 

Seeing how I already own multiple copies of the KQ series I am not interested in buying it again to play on Windows 7 if it’s simply the DOS version bundled with an emulator.  But if it works under Windows 7 I would buy it.  Can anyone offer some insight?
