Talk:Windows 3.x/3.00.55

From BetaArchive Wiki

Just wanted to speculate a bit, based on file dates alone. The final build of 3.0 appears to have files dated 5 May 1990, where as this build has files dated from around 2 January 1990. It is a build that was about 4 months older than the final release, so it is likely to have been nearly complete at this point. - jimmsta

Memory management in 386 Enhanced mode was definitely changed during those 4 months. This build can run fine in Enhanced mode in VPC (provided you use the correct DOS version), while the final can't without a modified SYSTEM.INI. Nonetheless, what stage could this build be? - DeFacto
