Hi. Was Windows 3.1 and its programs as fast in comparison with Windows 7 and its programs today.( I think it was). I haven't tried tried 'Progman.exe' in Windows 7 yet as I cannot find my copy of it. Does it work? I know it works in Vista. I hope this thread brings back memories.
I does bring back memories, like how long it took to install, painfully one floppy disk at a time that you had to feed the pc with.
In that time I could start W7 install make a cup of coffee and have it up and running surfing the net, before you could feed all the disks to Win 3.1.
MS office took 31 floppy disks to install, I don't care to repeat that.
I couldn't afford 8 meg of ram at that time in AU$ 1meg cost $200 in the early stage and then dropping on special to about $100-120 now 2GB is around $69AUD, a 500meg drive cost about $430AUD, now a 1TB costs $99AUD.
I enjoy the memories, but I wouldn't want to go back to 3.1, I don't even want to go back to Vista or XP, I like where I am now.
