When did you last use Windows 3.1x?
Perhaps a question for the older audience.
Lately the thought of building a DOS 6.22 / Win 3.1x -exclusive PC has crossed my mind more times than it is appropriate. I’ve been also wondering – when did the PC companies stop selling Windows 3.1x as a primary pre-loaded system?
I’d assume somewhere near/afte https://omegle.onl/ r the dawn of Windows 95, but alas, in the PC Mag’s 5 Nov 1996 issue and Computerworld’s 10 Mar 1997 (both readable at Google Books) there are still mentions of Win 3.1x as taking the largest share of the computer OS market.
I know, a lot of corporations stuck to their older PCs as the time progressed, which explains new copies of 3.1 being sold even in 1996 despite Microsoft’s push to the 32-bit architecture – but when did the PC companies stop offering 3.1 for the home user? Have you seen, or maybe remember the last time you saw an ad for a PC with 3.1x? When was the last time you used a 3.1-based machine? Really curious.
