    I was just browsing through my old stuff in my room, sorting out things and checking my old games and consoles (found my old game boy and commodore and similar) when I came across a box of floppy disks... I opened it checking what was inside and guess what I found?

    My old original copy of windows 3.11 that I used to have on my old 486... it's so awesome! I almost shed a tear for the nostalgia that it brought to me.. When I was using 3.11 I was a very very very little kid (I was 3 years old) and my dad used to work on it every day and let me play with MS paint and DOS games... ahh the memories, I wish I could go back in time just to use it once again.. Too bad in my house I don't have any floppy disk reader... [​IMG]

    Windows 3.11? Wow... what moments. Hell, I used Windows 3.11 until I was around 7 because I simply loved the old Imagination Station and Magicom CDs I had. You just couldn't beat me at any Skunny game. [​IMG]

    Well, I just got rid of two computers of mine that had Windows 3.11 on them. $2,000 one day, in trash bin the next [​IMG] .

    I think the earliest I can remember is Windows 95 as well. :< I also remember floppy disks... whatever happened to them? I guess once USB flash drives and CDs and whatnot came out, they were just left behind...

    I can't remember any further than Windows 95 also. (Is this a trend?) Floppy disks were slow as crap... 2GB hard drives seemed humongous back then. I do remember trying to fit in DOS/3.11 as part of a decaboot system.

    I still remember 3.11. Our school sucked so much ass before it got renovated that the old block still had pc's with 3.11.
    ALso, I used to use it at home till I was about 6 and the pc in the mosque where I used to play at till about 7 had 3.11. Didn't play as much as everyone else did though.

    Also, believe it or not, I sold about 11 floppies on thursday. I was amazed people still buy them.

    I'm going to my girlfriend's in a few hours and I'll be staying there for the night. She's still got a floppy reader on her computer (that machine is damn old, I'm surprised it can run XP ._.'') and I'll probably be backing those disks up in my usb key [​IMG] If somebody wants the content just tell me and I'll be posting it here (wait, I don't know if it's still copyright protected or if I'm allowed to post it here.. ._. if I'm not then too bad [​IMG] )... I know that I'd be interested if somebody did this lol [​IMG] I just want to browse all that old stuff and see how it was done... I was only 2-3 years old back then and I remember very little about programs and files heh

    When you use said computer, make a floppy image,
    and then download Virtual Box (http://www.virtualbox.org/)
    install it on a dynamicly expanding storage disk.

    There.

    I still have Win 3.11 on both floppy and CD. The CD was a restore disk that came with my 3rd and best computer ever. I still use Win3.11 on Dosbox. Hehe. [​IMG]

    Hi Morg! Trips here.

    I remember having 3.11 and sneaking into my dad's office to play the games that he had installed on it [​IMG]
