Ah Windows 3.1..
Program manager ..
DOS..

Windows 3.x required an 8086/8088 processor or better that had a clock speed of up to 10MHz. It needed at least 640KB of RAM, seven megabytes of hard drive space, and a graphics card that supported CGA, EGA and VGA graphics.

By comparison, the Home Basic version of Windows Vista requires a 32-bit 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 20GB of hard drive space, and a graphics card with at least 32MB of memory.

Vista beschikt dus over (minimaal) zowat 750x meer geheugen en een 100x snellere processor. Maar om nou te zeggen dat je ervaring ook in die mate verschilt..

En ik dacht dat Win 3.1 al lang verleden tijd was maar dat mogen we pas vanaf vandaag zeggen.
