Agreed, but at the time I loved the Win 3.x interface. I thought 3.51
was so cool because I could use 32 bit Win 95 apps just fine, I had a
system 100 x more stable than Win 95, and it had the old interface...
it was sort of like Win 3.11's big brother who has come out to beat up
Win 95 for spitting on it.
in hindsight the user interface was ass... but so are the Win95, 98,
2000, and XP interfaces. 2000 is about my favorite. XP is my second
least favorite with 3.x being my least favorite.
