Windows "Windows XP became the most effective Microsoft Bob deployment tool ever developed. And if you go way back into your closet, dig out your copy of Windows XP, and can somehow channel the right spirits to mash your hands on the keyboard in exactly the right way, then out of your encryption program will come a copy of Microsoft Bob."

Windows 3.1 had a lot of third-party shells available for it. My favourite was Xerox Tabworks. Instead of Program Manager with all the windows inside of another window, it used a tabbed notebook look. Each progman window was a tab. And there was a strip down the side where you could put your fave apps for quick access. Made things so much nicer and easier.

There was a Windows 9x version, but it didn't work nearly as well. This is the one thing I miss about Windows 3.1. ;)
