  4. <h1>MS-DOS &amp; Software</h1>
  5. This page contains download links for a very old Microsoft operating system so
  6. that it can be preserved -- on this corner of the Internet, anyway -- for
  7. anyone who is curious to tinker with the first versions of Windows or who just
  8. wants to take a trip down Nostalgia Avenue.<p>
  9. The operating systems here are distributed as floppy disk image files (with an
  10. .img extension). If you actually have a floppy drive, you'll have to flash
  11. these images onto floppy disks. If you just want to use
  12. <a href="">VirtualBox</a>, it can make use of the
  13. floppy image files directly.<p>
  14. <img src="/creativity/articles/doswin31_thumb.jpg">

  32. For tips, tricks, or to leave comments, see the relevant blog post "<a href="/blog/kirsle/ms-dos-and-windows-3-1">MS-DOS and Windows 3.1</a>". The comments on that blog post are shared to this page as well (so comments on either page show up in both places).<p>
