Well, happy times! While waiting for the new drive to come online I've decided to release a small portion of my abandonware collection along with the >previously mentioned Mac update<. I will also add a small console beta collection, at the moment it's very small, but it will grow over time. Due to the size of this release it will be split into separate releases.

Keep in mind that all these abandonware releases are installation floppies (and some CD-ROM ISO:s). I can't guarantee they all are 100% original, I had to re-create some floppies based on original installation scripts etc, but those are as close as you can get to the real deal. If you really happen to have the real floppies or images of those then please upload them and put a note with them that they are originals and I will update the archives.

Note that I am not adding any "warezed" releases such as the various DOS collections leaked on the net. These are usually dumped floppies without any installers and mostly cracked and hacked versions. All serials and cracks will be removed from all releases!. The point of abandonware is not for you to run pirated software, it's to preserve the software. I have not included any releases in foreign floppy image formats (such as HDK, TD0 etc). I will deal with these releases eventually and re-dump them into a raw floppy dump format. Assistance here is appreciated as well.

I have not yet found a naming solution for these abandonwares that I am happy with, so expect some filename changes over time. I have not added any tags telling if it's for DOS or Windows, just a language and a floppy tag for those releases that both has an ISO and floppy. I might merge these into a single archive later on (any ideas people?).

I have also added some requests to the collection, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator 95 (mentioned here) and some other private requests I've got (OSX betas I had on my personal server for example).

I would appreciate if the members told me if there is an error with a release, or if it's mislabeled or otherwise "bad".

Note: Some releases has an (alt) tag. I would request some extra attention on these, since they differ somewhat from the non-alt versions I included. I need some help figuring out the differences. Please PM me if you got answers =).

Note: Not all the releases in the "Operating System abandonware" collection are actually operating systems per definition. A lot of these are mere graphical shells on top of MS-DOS, but I categorize them as an OS since many applications require them to run (such as Windows 3.x applications, GEM tools etc).

Note: A lot of these releases exists in the old BA archive. But I will label all these releases as "Added", and then purge the old archive from duplicates. It takes too long to see which ones are added or repacked. Since all these additions come from my own personal collection I treat them all as "new" :P. I have also chosen to not release certain releases most members would classify as "abandonware" (such as Windows 98, OS/2 Warp 4.5, OS/2 eComStation) because they are a bit controversial since many of these are still used and sold under certain circumstances. I will also not include any easily obtainable releases such as Linux distros, CentOS etc since they can all be found on the common FTP mirrors on the net.

Tools used to dump/re-create floppy images: raread, WinImage.

Well, send up the lot if possible. Perhaps one of your versions are "better" than mine. It would be great either way, since we'll add to the collection =D. Thanks.

It'll take a while, I've got to clean it up a bit... :D
I think some of the time stamps are corrupted. Borland used to set them to the version number.

mrpijey does the Windows 3.11 (and the Workgroup version) come from in original form? If it's not, I found both in my TechNet+ subscription, added by Microsoft on 08-25-2005.

Plus, does Microsoft Works 7.0 considered as abandonware? If it is, I can upload it, just found the disc a couple of day before.

That would be nice, I'd rather use that than OpenOffice on my laptop (since OpenOffice is a huge resource hog). I have a copy of Microsoft Albany (subscription based Office) that I need to upload (although sans key :()

I already got it, but I chose to not add releases newer than 95 at this moment.

As far as I know it's original. But I am not sure, so send up whatever you got and I'll replace whatever that needs replacing.

Depends on when it's made. If it's prior to 2000 then send it up and I'll add it to the next batch. I try to keep to the 10 year old limit, even if some releases are somewhat questionable....

Now that's confusing.... you quoted the post I made saying that I should read your other post regarding this, although my post was posted before you posted your post... xD

@Logical: Please upload Albany... shortly after the Beta ended I asked a lot of people for it but noone kept it.... would be nice to get it :)

Yeah, time got warped here so the result came before the action that started it....... (OK, no more Star Trek for me this week...).

Either way, Office 95 has been released in the abandonware release I made today.
