A Fully Working Windows 3.1 Emulator In Your Browser

In Microsoft, Windows on September 27, 2010 at 12:34 AM

A lot of our readers did not have the chance  to try out Windows 3.1. Yours truly was only three when it was first released. For all of those out there who have been yearning for the 16 bit goodness that is 3.1, good news: Site designer/web programmer Michael Vincent has a released an online Windows 3.1 simulator. Minesweeper, non-cascading windows–it’s all there, right in your browser.

Perhaps the coolest part of the site is the fact that an OS released less than twenty years ago can now be run in a web browser. I personally cannot wait to run 64 bit Windows 7 on my Firefox 10.0 in 2015.
