Window Managers EDE 1.2 is a new version of EDE (Equinox Desktop Environment) which brings mostly bugfixes. Also it comes with full German and French localization. The Equinox Desktop Environment is a small desktop environment, built to be simple, to have a familiar look and feel and to be reasonably fast.

It looks like Windows 95.

However, does it run on a 486 with 8-16 MB RAM like Windows 95?

Today's Windows is a resource hog but back then it was pretty reasonable.

Yes, it looks like Win95.

But back then, Win95 was a resource hog, too.

Most computers of that time had only 4MB RAM, so that everyone who bought the new and shiny Win 95 box in 1995, was also forced to buy a new piece of at least 4MB RAM. And in these days RAM was very expensive.

And, by the way, on a 486-66MHz machine with 8 to 16 MB RAM, OS/2 Warp 3 was lightyears ahead of "Chicago".

I have to disagree with you. Back then computers had 16-32MB RAM. I had an old Cyrix 76MHz or something like that with 16MB RAM...running Win95
