It'd be cool to have the 3.1 floppies, I have a Tandy computer with the 5.25" floppy drive and 3.5".

That's not too old...I've got a HP Pavilion with ME...but I quickly realized ME stands for many errors, and got a new PC with XP when I could.

I love old operating systems. Especially ones with command-line interfaces, like Unix.

Windows 3.1 was a horrible experience, Windows 98 was amazing for it's time.
