Possibly the worst/best thing I've seen all year. Wait for the rap is all I have to say.

It looks like that company was too cheap to have the lights on.... so dark...

I don't think the 80s heard of proper lighting... look what things looked cool back then.
11 years ago
Nothing to do with the lighting. In the 80's it was cataracts. Thanks to the grunge movement and subsequent excessive pot use, we can see clearly now.

Wow, they were actually using floppy floppy-discs back when this was made.

wow, that was creepy! Anyone have any promo's or commercials for Window's 3.1? I'm guessing Windows 386 came before 3.1. I've used many 386/486 computers back in the day, but they usually ran 3.1/3.11.
11 years ago
I knew somebody that had seen Windows 1.0 and 2.0, but never dealt with Windows 386. I heard that Win 1.0/2.0 both sucked, but I've worked with 3.0/3.1, and they were ok...
11 years ago
I remember 3.0, but not what operating system in college. We were using tape drives instead of floppy disk. Anyone remember what they were using in '82? All I can remember is programming stupid shit in basic.
11 years ago
I remember the 8" floppies for awhile there, but didn't have much else, except for a simple 10 Meg hard drive, if you were lucky.

Sounds like you were using a Commodore 64 SNIKT.

I did some reading on Wikipedia, I guess Windows386 is a name given to Windows 2.0. And the reason why she said "when OS/2 is recommended..." is because Microsoft used to help IBM develop OS/2. Windows was originally designed to be the low end OS shipped with the computers, but OS/2 was a business oriented one they expected everyone to upgrade too. Since computers came with Windows, it took off better then OS/2, and eventually Microsoft left IBM comletely to develop it solely.

Windows 2.0, introduced in the fall of 1987, provided significant useability improvements to Windows. With the addition of icons and overlapping windows, Windows became a viable environment for development of major applications (such as Excel, Word for Windows, Corel Draw!, Ami, PageMaker and Micrografx Designer), and the sales were spurred by the runtime ("Single Application Environment") versions supplied by the independent software vendors.
In late 1987 Microsoft released Windows/386. While it was functionally equivalent to its sibling, Windows/286, in running Windows applications, it provided the capability to run multiple DOS applications simultaneously in the extended memory.
