I worked in a computer store about that time, don't know how many Windows 3.1 installs I performed. Probably couldn't install it now as I've become accustomed to the automatic installs of today.
Windows 95 was on 13 or 17 3.5-inch floppies, and OS/2 was on 24 floppies (17 for the operating system, 7 for the additional drivers).
I don't think those were the good ol' days.
