    Old software, free to good home!

    I've cleared some of my stuff out of my parents loft today, and amongst it all was a box of old mainly microsoft software, all origenal 3.5" disks. Seems a shame to just throw it all out, but I've got absolutely no use for it so if anyone fancies seeing what word version 2.0 looks like, or wants an official copy of windows 3.0 then let me know!

    I've got the following, (All are proper origenal disks)

    MS-DOS 5 (2 copies)
    Visual Basic 3 Professional
    Powerpoint Version 3.0
    Project Version 3.0
    Excel Version 4.0 (2 copies)
    Word Version 2.0 (3 Copies)
    Access Version 2.0
    Access Version 1.1
    MS works for DOS (Version 3)
    Windows Version 3.0
    Windows Version 3.1
    Micrografx Draw Version 3.0

    These are all official origenal Microsoft disks, I got them in a job lot brought at a clearance auction about 12 years ago. Seems a shame to throw them away, but they are completely useless to me so if anyone can make use of them, you are welcome to them for the cost of the postage.

    I can't garuntee that all the disks work, they are up to 15 years old and have been in a loft for at least the last 6 or 7 years. I tried a couple on my machine and they read OK, but there's over 100 discs, so can't possibly test them all!

    Mike.

    P.S I'm not splitting them, all or nothing if you want them!
