You know, for a very long time before I discovered WindowBlinds, I put a lot of effort into making things look as much like 3.11 as I could. I still love the look of it, but damned if I'm going to dedicate CPU cycles and a little RAM to emulating it through another program, there's just something, oh, silly about that.

/fires up ProgMan and tries to get rid of silly Start button/taskbar

Ok,

Its good work, but why would I want to make my pc look like something that was really BAD when it was out?

Sorry

I'm giving it a high rating because it's a well designed skin. While I don't suffer from such extreme nostalgia, giving credit where credit's due is a whole another thing Good job

I'm old school - 31 yrs old - but not really diggin this one. I mean, yeah, it's a throw back... but it doesn't mean it represents something I miss. Good job with the skin though.

I'm just as old school as keymastr - 31... ack...

Anyhoo, I don't dig it not because it's bad, but because it isn't nostalgia for me. Back in the Win 3.1 days I was avoiding Windows by first using DesqView/386 and then OS/2 Warp 3.0.. It took the failure of my first attempt at a usable Linux system and significant forays of Windows 95 (and OSR2 release) before I finally went the darkened path. If IBM hadn't dropped consumer support of OS/2, I'd probably still be using it today. OS/2 was just so much more stable and fast than those early windows versions.

Very nice but I would rename this to Windows31 or something so that people searching for it can find it.

Yes! Exactly what I needed!

So retro and classic looking , it almost makes me want to get out Windows 3.11 and install it on a newer computer just for the heck of it!

Seems I'm a little late in seeing this. You did great! So glad to see a windowblind from you.

Thank you for your kind words!

As to installing Windows 3.11 - I installed in on a Virtual PC and it's incredible. Everything is instantaneous! The system starts within a second and that's within the virtual machine. Now imagine a good modern machine running it... Now if only there was any software still available for it

Funny thing though. I managed to get a few GPS'es without even installing a single thing. Perhaps it's not such a good idea after all?

Yeah, better simply enjoy the skin and skip the trauma.
