Now we all know that Windows 3.11 is long gone, but after that you read this strange title again and start wondering? Yes, although you know that retail distribution of Windows 3.11 has been out for very long, it had been around for a good 15 years selling through the so called Embedded Channel. Windows for Workgroups (WFW) 3.11 is still used in a countless number of low-horsepower platforms such as cash registers and train schedule displays. That's until today, when Microsoft is officially ending all sales of Windows 3.11 for good. Microsoft's John Coyne announced:
for those that were not aware, we recently announced that effective November 1st, 2008, OEM's will no longer be able to license Windows for Workgroups 3.11 in the embedded channel. Now we all know that it's been long gone in the standard (retail/OEM) channel, but one of the unique things in the embedded business is that we allow the classic OS products to be sold longer than the other channels. it's *finally the end of an era!

win 2K would be the next one up, i'd bet. its old, needs minimal resources and is stable nowadays.

you're most likely right, and that was my guess as well. win 2k is the best NT dist. for the job, as it does not waste time with fancy graphics, contains, minimal bloatware, and is extremely stable (probably more stable then xp and vista).

i think the main reason behind this is because ms is in trouble, due to limited vista sales, and their profits are falling low, and they need to push for more upgrades, and now they are targeting a new niche to push.

oh god i hope that i will not see more blue screens on train schedules, cash registers, and atms..

[me] lalalala time to withdraw some money from the bank.. running low on some rubber and need to buy more

why would you run a gameboy emulator for an FBI agent? (see the sig above your post)





To be honest, this really was a surprise that 3.11 was even in use. shoulda been nerfed a long time ago.

I remember UPGRADING to WFW3.11, and being impressed with how much better it was than any Windows before. It was with WFW3.11 that we moved over to Excel and to Lotus Notes. Wow. Those were the days... and two super productivity tools right there.

Looking at the WFW screenshot is auite funny. Doesnt it look terrible! LOL.

BUT with the announcement of the abandonment of WFW, what does that mean for it w.r.t copyright? Does it officially become abandoned? Is it in a grey zone... since MS official says it will not longer attempt to extract any commericial activity from the product.

... but more importantly, what is the replacement for WFW and those low powered simple embedded devices? I'm still waiting for that elusive micro-NT kernel. Where is it? We want it for embedded devices.

it's a shame to see the most stable WIN platform finally being shut out . . . somewhere around here I still have the original install disks for 3.1 . . .


I guess everyone running WFW will have to revert back to DOS 6.22 if they're concerned about stability :laugh:

Man I loved WFW 3.11! I remember kicking and screaming (practically) when making the change to Win95. It was almost like you could feel MS taking some of the control from the people who really new how to work in DOS, etc. So long ole friend!:rockout:

DOS was 1337 if you knew what you were doing . . .

I've still got a few MS-DOS operation manuals around here that list all the DOS commands, their flags and what they do . . .


man, I was ticked when I found out with XP there was no longer a DOS mode . . . only a command prompt :mad:

I've got win 3.0 on 11 floppy's as OEM and the retail of 3.11 on 18 floppys in ger/eng lang don't know why i keept them for such a long time.

and for this new: MS you stupid as hell, linux will replace the embedded 3.11 version as 98se and xp embedded just crash.
we change xp embedded every day to bloated xp home standart as it runs stable.
