I also had the packaging from my Windows 95 Retail (about) 14 Floppy Disk
version but the packaging dissapeared not long after I took it home for an old 486 I purchased at a yard sale :? .

I wish I could take some pictures (and screenshots for the downloaded OS's) of this stuff but I'm not sure where my camara is. Also, I don't like to go wasting my time playing with modern junk when I could be installing an old Chicago Build or making an attempt to mimic Chicago Build 34. However, if you want pictures, just tell me and I'll try to take some pictures (and screenshots of the downloaded stuff) of these OS's.
I know pictures are expected but if you want pictures/screenshots I promise I'll try to take some. Also, I unfortunately have a Dial-Up connection but it won't be long before I have access to a DSL connection.

Again, if anyone wants pictures/screenshots, please tell me and I'll try my best.

I never got the time to install and test it.

From the booklet:
"This OS/2 Warp Try and Buy CD-ROM contains a 45 day trial copy of the full OS/2 Warp product, plus an extensive set of office and communication applications called BonusPak.

You have 45 days to work with this exiting new operating system; at any timne during this 45 day trial period, you may decide to purchase OS/2 Warp."

I can upload it to a server, if anybody is interested.

It's an OEM version. Also, it might be dated 1996 because it's Windows 95A.

Also, you have a nice collection of retail OS CDs. :)

I think you should show the betas. hjort wants everyone to show their beta CDs. That's partly what this topic is about. Also, what's in your MSDN subscriptions?

He said alpha, beta, retail, whatever and also showed pics of non-beta CDs himself. In fact, hjort only showed pics of retail CDs.

It's a big (1350 pages) book aimed at IT pros that tells you pretty much everything you could want to know about Windows 95 - in MS's words "The Professional's Companion to Windows 95 - the technical guide to planning for, installing, configuring and supporting Windows 95 in your organisation". There's also a CD "Resource Kit Utilities" included in a pocket in the back. I found this at a grab-it-if-you-want-it clearout of some old computer bits a while back so that's how it got into my collection :)

The Windows 95 Resource Kit is a manual provided by Microsoft. The manual includes information such as information about Setup, Troubleshooting, and deployment. As with other Resource Kits by Microsoft, utilities are provided.

If you like the DOS disks, these 4.01 ones I've got are quite nice, as they have the old Microsoft logo from Windows 1.0x :) -
