HI!!
I found on an FTP site a Windows 2.9 Beta (or so called).
I want to know if it's a REAL beta or a Hexedited Windows 3.0
Thanks!
Here's the link!

It's just been modified. But if your collection is only made up of genuine versions then this won't do.

I downloaded and installed this modified build a year or two ago and couldn't find any differences, other than the 2.9 beta branding and version numbers is misc places in the OS. How does 2.9 differ from Windows 3.0 or 3.0a?

2.9 is just a hacked 3.00 build. So, it's essentially the same.

Microsoft Windows 2.9 is a modified version of Microsoft Windows 3.0 which as a result of the different major version number is to some extent incomptaible with some software that is real-mode-dependent.
