Someone obvious got the idea for seeing 3.1 in a browser from coming across another site sometime back for Windows4all. http://www.silveos.com/ I'm posting through the IE there as well.

Hmmm, maybe I should install Win 95 in a virtualized system and play Wolf 3D in its original format.

You don't even need any old version on a vm with DOSBox to run the old stuff! How about some old Duke Nukem another 8bit classic dos game?!

Just imagine hearing an old 8BIT'r like that in 5.1 not through a tiny speaker on the board!

I actually had DN running on a 98 machine at one time by simply using the selective startup and not loading the autoexec.bat file to run it from dos as well as the Duke3D.

As for Wolf3D I ended up with the sequel RTWC running on the 64bit 7. I would need to make a 95 boot floppy to see 95 on VBox to accompany 98 there already!

The idea behind these sites however is to allow anyone to run an old Legacy version without any custom setups, VM wares on their own machine. For those that started off with 98, ME, 2K, or XP they never saw what 3.1 looked like being 95's predacessor there.

Microsoft could launch a completely new browser with Windows 10 | VentureBeat | Business | by Harrison Weber A lot of people think IE is slow. To me, the older the computer, the slower IE is. I am wondering if this new browser will be available for all versions of Windows. What do y'all think?
