View Full Version : ms windows 1

I found a downloadable version of ms windows 1 the other day, i was considering installing it just to see what the first version was like. Would it able to control a modern pc though. Unless i mistaken mswin 1 didnt have large hard disks, large amounts of memory and muliththreading chips. So would work and is there any point?

Will the file system support a 20 gig hard drive? I doubt it. I think it's FAT16 that we are talking about. Why would you want to do this? You must be running a piece of junk. Get Win2k and you won't have to collect garbage.

I also found a copy of Win 1.0 to download. I do not want to install it on one of my new computers, so I am looking for an old 486 or something like that to install it on.
