Currently i'm working on a CD that will contain all versions of Windows 1.x-3.x, including betas, OEMs & foreign languages versions. You make a choose what to install using nice batch menu. Here are some screenshots (nothing exciting TBH): http://japan.xk.pl/WSAIOCD/screenshots.htm :)
Current stage: beta 1.

That looks really nice. What's with the Apricot, will it change graphics or add functionality?

I think about both. It will has its own theme, wallpapers, icons, replace lots of XP images, etc. But also the default apps will be changed to better ones (MSPaint -> Paint.NET, Notepad -> Notepad++, etc.). I plan also removing the unneeded stuff. Maybe add app like sidebar also? And some registry trick to improve performance of the system. However, nothing to really talk about yet, as it is still in planning stage. (if you have any suggestions please feel free to say :) )

looks good, word of advice,dont try to improve it or you will get in a never ending cycle of trying to improve the menue and it will never be finished.

Is it only non-betas?

Oh, and why don't you add Windows 1.00?

That would be handy indeed, saves you ratting through disks to install a particular build.
I've seen AIO's of everything else in the past, never anything containing pre Windows 95 though.

What program are you using to create the menu options shown on your screenshot above.

I've compiled the ISO before PE was out, somewhen in mid-march.
