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.

I installed OS/2 Warp (via floppy disks) on my 486dx4 133 MHz system with 8? 16? MB of RAM back in university. Unfortunately, it had a WinModem installed and couldn't connect to the Internet via dial-up. ;)

But, it included Win-OS/2, and there were Win 3.x drivers for the modem. ;) Once it was connected via Windows, the OS/2 apps could surf the web/gopher/IRC/chat. ;)

Eventually got Win98SE running on that system as there wasn't much in the way of useful OS/2 software. But it was fun playing around with it while it lasted.
