What would you say it was then? I wasn't being stupid, it was 'just for fun'And anyway Windows 3.1 isn't an OS
It's about 20 floppy disks, so whilst it was slightly tempting to install them, I couldn't find a floppy drive.
There's nothing wrong with DOS and Windows:
echo y. | deltree c:\win
works a treat
You can still download windows 3.11 off technet!
Think there might be some compatability and driver issues tho
I still have the disks for 3.14! and somewhere there is a box with the 122 floppy disks of the orginal office and i may still have Stacker anyone remeber that it doubled your disk space but made your coumputer totaly unsuable....
I say bring back dos, ill just have to remeber its dir not ls
I have just found my NT4 disks!
Logging you on with cached credentials anyone??
stacker, christ. I remember my old man getting bored, went round to his one night and he'd been playing with a (then huge) 840mb hard drive. He'd got just over 2gb out if it!
He tried ever so hard to actually try and fill it up in that state but couldn't find enough files and got bored of copying
840MB i prbabaly still go one of them in teh cupboard
I remeber having two 40MB dirves and that was the dogs knackers, to get my pc to work with stacker i had to choose between the 4 speed CD ROM drivers or the mouse drivers! Autoexec.bat. emm386 god its all comming back
oh my giddy aunt Yeah, it was a new toy and it needed to be played with. Can certainly remember the old 40mb drives - hell, I've still got a Winchester lying around (either a 5 or 10mb, full height, could hold open a bank vault door/put Mike Tyson's back out). But let's not start reminiscing, it'll just make us all feel old
Of course I'm not that old - at that age I was at school trying to get around the "security" on what they called "networks" in those days so I could fire up Wolfenstein 3D or Commander Keen
Wolfeinstein 3d that takes me back!!! Im not that old either, my first memories are getting Space and Kings Quest to run on my 386 lol must have been about 11.
The constant use of virtual memory on a compressed hard drive is a wonderful sight to behold!
This thread is now about win16 nostalgia.
Back at the OP, I suggest going windows 7 if you like to play IRL as opposed to VMs. Go 64 bit if you're feeling brave - My copy still seems nice and responsive.
FWIW, I remember doublespacing my c:\ as an inexperienced 13 year old and then wondering where all the performance went in my amazing 133 rig
