The Windows 1.01 Project

So during some slow time at work the other day we were looking at the history of Windows on Wikipedia and decided to see if we could find a copy of Windows 1.01.  We didn’t have any practical uses in mind (are there any), we just wanted to see if we could find it.  Luckily enough a quick search of our favorite Scandinavian software locating website found one person that had it.  so now that we’d found it we had to see if we could download it.  It was a whopping 1.35 mb download, so we weren’t sure if only one seeder was going to work.  After about five minutes we had our hands on our very own copy of Windows 1.01 in all of it’s five floppy disk glory.  Next we thought, since we have it, of course we were obligated to see if we could get it running.  Once we get it going I ‘ll post some screen caps.
