Hi!!
I've also got a Windows 3.11 beta, but it's actually complete (almost) do you know if there are any Windows 3.0 betas? Something between Windows 2.03 or 286/386 and Windows 3?
That's something I'd really love to have!

Janus is the codename for Windows 3.1. 3.0 had a different codename, if it had one. And "286" is not a codename for 2.x, it was used to differentiate between the "normal" Windows 2.x versions (Windows/286) and other versions that were able to access more memory (Windows/386) AFAIK.

It was Windows 3.11's. (Or WFW 3.11's? But I'm quite sure this is codenamed Sparta...)

Janus is the code-name of Windows 3.1, Spart (or even Kato) of Windows for Workgroups 3.1, and Snowball of Windows for Workgroups 3.11. ;)
