Are you a fan of Windows 3.11

Windows 3.11

Well, if so then you have until November 1, 2008 to get a copy of it. After that, Windows 3.11 for Workgroups will no longer be available. It’s hard to understand why Microsoft has continued to support Windows 3.11 while trying so hard to get rid of Windows XP lately.

Windows 3.11 was released on August 11, 1993..which means that it has managed to pack in 15 years of support! Windows XP was released on October 25, 2001 and after only 7 years of support is now being pushed under the rug by Microsoft in an effort to help Vista gain more popularity and force Windows users to open their wallets to purchase what is in my opinion only worthy of being called a Service Pack for Windows XP. Windows XP will only be on sell while remaining supplies last. Currently most retailers still show signs of steady stock, but once it’s gone…well…it’s gone.
