OK, how many people here remember what Win/386 was? And how it related to the MS Cairo project?


@arivigo The first Windows I ever came in contact with was Windows/286. (We ran some Adobe product on it until I convinced the boss to get PageStream for the Amigas, and got much better output for him.)

@murph @arivigo
Once upon a time I wanted to install Windows Server 2000 but they said I need a license. I noticed the installation probed my floppy so I looked in the box, found a 5 1/4 Windows 386 floppy, and the Server 2000 accepted it. Funny.

BTW I also saw Windows 1.0 once. That was really funny.
