Looking ti download a Windows 3 or 3.1 iso to throw on a VM for a project.
I believe you can actually download it free though I would avoid it and get dos 6.22 and get a custom shell (like amiga shell) and use that. 3.1 is basically dos 6 with a really shit window system so please save the pain in the ass that is windows 3 unless its for a specific school project.
I can mail you a floppy. :-)
Lol, I don't have a floppy reader anymore.
What are you planning to do with it? Usually Dosbox is my go to for anything 'legacy'.
Should have asked me a few days ago. Just recycled a windows 3.1 floppy. Still have my 98 and 95 though
buddy of mine kept his floppy disk drive in the case of his pc. It's not connected to anything, he just thinks it's funny to pop a floppy disk into and pretend he's accessing data when someone new comes over.
There may be a pretty good site for obtaining certain legacy operating systems iso files (though this is a gray area legally and therefore cannot advise it and obviously can't post a link [also due to my not being able to remember the name lol]).
Dosbox is very solid, but certain games require windows 3/3.1 (at least last time i tried it over 2 years ago before actually learning about computers). That being said, it can be fun to play around with older operating systems so that might also be a reason to get win 3/3.1
Yeah I still have a Win98 SE CD. And Win2000. And a few FDD lol. I even have a USB FDD because Assus used to love supply RAID/SAS chip & backplane drivers as FD imaging tools, so you couldn't even really extract the DLLs you had to image a floppy. Dix.
I love that guy. His Guile theme is amazing.
though i recommend os/2 from ibm. It was better.
WinWorldPC was my 1 stop shop for retro computing. They have several versions of all those old OS disks, even with service packs and language packs. I hope it gets back online, even the Lycos-ish layout was fun to see.
I Still have my 3.11 install on my (2GB!! :O) hard disk, but it's in spanish and with a crapload of games. Even if I pull all the stuff with IDE->USB adaptor and image it, I doubt you'll find it useful.
BTW Archive.org has a ton of content for early windows and DOS. check that out
Man I love floppy music like mrsolidsnake on youtube.
