Internet Archive Does Windows: Hundreds of Windows 3.1 Programs Join the Collection image/svg+xml

Windows 3.1

Windows 3.1 running in a web browser.

We’ve now added over 1,000 programs that run, in your browser, in a Windows 3.1 environment. This includes many games, lots of utilities and business software, and what would best be called “Apps” of the 1990s – programs that did something simple, like provide a calculator or a looping animation, that could be done by an individual or small company to great success.

I can barely remember Windows 3.1, it seems like such a long time ago. Anyway, I think this is just brilliant, not Windows 3.1, but the fact that you can run it in a browser. Kudos to the Internet Archive, they are doing excellent work.
