Windows

In November last year I wrote about the forgotten and obscure feature of early Windows 95 builds that lets you run Windows 3.1 in a window on Windows 95. Since then I was wondering if this would still work on the final build (950) of Windows 95, considering so much has changed since build 58s.

I won't spoil it.

It took a year for one guy to install Windows for Workgroups 3.11 on modern hardware in 2016 (as a side project).

This is the guy who did “Make the 486 Great Again!” and was featured in OSNews in “The oldest x86 processor still supported by a modern Linux kernel?”.
