Windows 3.x Screenshots Center

Post by Battler »

Well... the idea about it all started when I not only already had so many versions of Windows 3.x, but the number of them got bigger and bigger. So one day, i got an idea to make a Windows 3.x Screenshots Center.

Afterwards, I got a whole stack of international versions of Windows 3.1x's and DOS'es from MSDN, and this only reinforced my idea of the Windows 3.x Screenshots Center.

So, I'm already making it. Half of the screenshots are already taken (except for the Farsi edition of Windows 3.1, which has a corrupted GDI.EXE, so I can't get it to work properly), the other half I'll take when I come home this week (I'm at the university right now, approx. 110 km from home, so I don't have access to those files here), and when I finish doing that, I'm finally going to start writing the site.

The site will also have the information about all those Windows 3.x's, and also a guide for how to install the (now infamous) Windows 3.1 codename Janus build 034.

The site will be located here: http://www.obrasilero.com/win3x (note: it's still an empty link), and when I finish the site, I'll tell that here, in this very thread.

So, just stay tuned.

How about Windows 3.0 and NT 3.1/3.5/3.51? The UI is very similar, although NT is completely different under the surface.

Yeah, a few subtle differences though, might be interesting to compare the versions

HUGE time gap! My advice for you is to actually look when the last post was!
