    Well, you learn something every day. Apparently Windows 3.11 is still being sold these days, for embedded devices. Until November 1st, 2008, that is. 15 years after its release.

    Where's InfoWorld's 'Save 3.11' campaign?

    Wow... this is freaky. I can't barely remember Win3.11 - so long gone, so young I was, young, oooh so young.

    At the time people were posting pictures of C9 in obscure browsers so I decided to do IE3 in Win3.11. Then I decided to make a video of it for no good reason. Smiley

    What do you expect on a 3.16GHz machine? Tongue Out

    The video is 4x speed btw.

    I guess Windows XP Embedded is it's successor? I know it's used quite a bit in Vegas slot machines and things like that now, and starting to get more exposure.

    Epic. God, the times I've seen that blue boot tile thing on my Amstrad Mega PC...

    Interesting, on a lark I downloaded 3.11 from MSDN and tried to install it on VPC. At some point, it asploded quite spectacularly, and I wasn't really that motivated to get it to work... now I know that it's at least possible to do. Wink
