I found some screenshots and information of a Spanish version of Windows 98 Beta 3 from a Spanish computer magazine from April 1998. What's interesting is the magazine says (translated): "Microsoft Spain has distributed to a group of clients registered in previous versions, priced at 4.995 pesetas (pesetas being a currency between 1869 and 2002)."

This probably means it's a standalone Spanish Windows 98 Beta 3, which is interesting as I've never heard of one before. Has anyone heard of one before? In any case, here's a screenshot from the magazine. I could upload all the scans but my internet is currently working intermittently. Ah well...

This magazine also has information about previous Memphis and Chicago builds, OS/2 Warp 3 and 4, Windows 98 SE RC1 and Windows 2000 Beta 3. Many of that I've already posted in other threads but if you want, I can offer some for you.

I can have some information about this "Beta 3", as I'm interested.

I am not a Spanish speaker and I don't know anything about the Spanish language, aside from recognizing sentence languages.

Heard of Windows 98 Beta 3 English but never the Spanish version. The magazine you have sounds pretty cool and sounds to have informative details of old Windows Betas in my opinion. I wonder where you got it from.

Interesting a Spanish variant of Windows 98 Beta 3. Never heard of many Windows versions being in different languages. If possible, can you post the source on where you got it from? Thanks.

A lot of international betas existed in the 9x era, in fact there are a few screenshots of Czech Windows 95 betas available as well (IIRC, Jagotu posted them), it's very unlikely we'll ever see disk images of these though
