After the installation, I discover that nearly all applications of windows 2.9 are named as Windows 3.00a besides the windows setup.Therefore, I want to ask this version from FTP is a hacked version or a real beta version? Thanks :o

It's fake, but in 1988 there was a Windows 3.0 prototype, and there were also betas of this OS.

You probably mean the Janus and Sparta betas. We're talking about Windows 3.0 betas.

That's the screenshot Namronia wanted to post, and he also had another topic about Windows Concept Screenshots. If you want, I could also post a very early Solitaire screenshot that I found from the same source.

In the late 80's, people were searching for Windows 3.0 Betas on the Internet. There was a guy named Wes Cherry, and he created Solitaire during this time and released it.

Although there are currently no leaked Windows 3.0 betas, I'll be looking for them.

If you want to find the early Solitaire screenshot yourself, you could do a Google search of "Susan Kare". That would lead you to her design portfolio.

If you're talking about the Windows 3.0 Betas, I already said I'm going to look for them. I'm actually going to a certain computing related flee market in April, and I'll search for betas there, because I heard that it's the place where you would find things like that. Unfortunatly, I can't search for betas nearby, because the people here are the "XYZ Computers" types, and arn't very intrested in betas.
