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.

What makes an operating system an operating system rather then an application, especially in the (MS-)DOS days? Back in the days where each application that handles sounds had to include its own support, rather then rely on the operating systems support.

Stating that Windows 3.1 used its own drivers, well.... running on top of (MS-)DOS you had to for most hardware. Okay, there were DOS drivers for mice, but that's about it. And for CD-ROM drives, Windows 3.1 depended on the support DOS offered.
