I've got a couple of OS files on my website, hopefully with some more to come soon, like Windows 2, 3, 3.1, etc...

I can imagine that most of everybody here either already has most of these files or can get them easily enough, however, I have tried to put a couple of curiosities there, for example, the Chicago 73 boot logo, and a Chicago 122 boot disk (which is a curiosity because it shows the graphical logo as it boots, even though it has not GUI).

I've got Chicago 58 on there, along with things like Windows 1.01 and MS-DOS 3.21, and the original Linux 0.99 thing. Also, in case anyone either has an old PPC-512/640 lying around, or just wants a laugh, my 720K Windows 1 bootable's there (Windows 1 does look rather good on a PPC-512's screen - it looks at home). Please have a look, and please tell me if anything there's wrong (I'm aware that the Chicago 58s.zip file does not work, which is why the VHD file's there. I want to make an ISO file, test it, and then put that there instead of the zip file. ). Thanks.

Nope, haha, look at the page. I've just updated it a little, so it should be a little clearer what everything is. But both are there. After a fashion.

Yeah, what happened to whats-his-name releasing the actual copy of windows 1.0? :x

Chicago 58s was the first beta I collected. Brings back so many memories. <3

I searched for weeks for MSBob, then I found OSBA... Brings back memories.

I remember looking for OS betas, specifically Windows 95 and I found OSBA! Boy was I excited :)

Yes, I think Chicago and Longhorn were the first ones I looked for too - I looked for Longhorn for literally months and eventually got 5048 off a torrent a few days after it was released at WinHEC '05 (I'd tried getting 4074 previously but all the torrents seemed dead, I guess because it was an old build by the time I was looking for it and everyone who wanted it had got it long ago) - this was long before I discovered OSBA :P There was just something I found very intriguing about Chicago, which is why that's the other one that I was after, especially after I'd seen screenshots of 58s and how it is so different to the final 95 and is like a cross between 3.1 and 95
