Description: From

Released in 1990, Microsoft Windows 3.0 was a revolutionary operating system for the PC as one of the most used GUI operating systems.
Later Windows 3.1 was released in 1992 by Microsoft and was one of the first major PC GUI operating systems widely used. Windows 3.1 allowed users to utilize several features previously not available in MS-DOS. Some of these new features were the use of a mouse which allowed the user to navigate and manipulate data on the computer with one hand simply and easily and now did not have to memorize MS-DOS commands. In addition to the mouse, Windows now allowed the user to multitask, meaning the user could now run multiple applications at once without having to close out of each program before running another. Windows along with other GUI operating systems are one of the many reasons computers have become easier and more widely used.

Download has been replaced. It now features all seven original installation floppies and an ISO of the original Windows 3.1 CD-Rom. Also a freeware app called Calmira II is inside the package. Calmira II is a 16-bit shell for Windows 3.1 that extends some of the functionality of Windows 95/98 to Windows 3.1 like the Startmenu. Thanks for this package go out to CGN member: Kyalami.
