    Very impressive that applications installed in Windows 3.0 still work on Vista.

    Great find. I thoroughly enjoyed watching that video and find it amazing that Windows 7 was able to run programs installed from much earlier Windows installations. I give Microsoft some credit for that.

    It says in the video they miss ME as it is very difficult to upgrade to and from.

    23 years of compatibility and Apple can't even manage half a decade before dumping an OS and dumping compatibility modes. But what I find funny is that Apple has a closed hardware system and can't even manage that. Should have it easier than M$.

    They are kinda opposites. M$ is good with software compatibility in the long run but can't make hardware worth a darn. Apple...makes machines designed to last a long time, well...they used to, but discontinues software as soon as possible.

    I watched it some time ago in full screen. :cool:

    But yah this is cool stuff. It's like when a friend bought a new computer with Windows 7 and complained that he had to run the programming software he bought in 1995 in admin mode. I pointed out that the program was 16 years old and still worked, which is sort of amazing.
