Windows Microsoft recently announced that effective November 1st, 2008, OEMs will no longer be able to license Windows for Workgroups 3.11 in the embedded channel. It's the end of an era.

This is truly the end of an era. Window for Workgroups 3.11 was the first version of Windows which me and many other people used. It was once widely available de facto operating system which was later replaced by 95. It took me at least till early '97 before I moved on to 95 SR2.

I haven't used it since then but there must have been embedded uses such as (but not including) ATM's long into the 21st century.
