An Official End to Windows 3.11

November 6th, 2008

MicrosoftAs of November 1st, Microsoft stopped issuing licenses for Windows 3.x. You might be wondering why Microsoft was selling a 15 year old operating system, but apparently it’s being used in embedded systems. Windows 3.11 was, in my opinion, the first version that was usable in a business environment. It had networking support and better memory management, and it was much more stable than previous versions.
