Windows However old, Windows 3.x is still being used. Calmira XP 4.0 beta gives the Windows 3.x desktop the WinXP look-and-feel. In this new version an XP taskbar has been added, and even experimental support for long file names. Other things Calmira includes is the XP login screen, and more. And here it is, boys and girls, the obligatory screenshot.

I'd rather scoff at Windows XP and how often it fails to do the simplest of tasks. Said IT staff would have to be total morons to think that replacing a working system, just because it's old is a wise idea.

Point understood, but would you care to explain how XP "fails to do the simplest od tasks"? I have been using it in a desktop/development environment for almost half a decade, and I have had less problems than with any other operating system that I have ever tried. I can understand why someone in a mission-critical environment would want to stay with 3.x, but why someone would pick 3.x over 2000/XP/etc. in a typical situation is beyond me.
