Does anyone still run Windows 3.1 - I recently resurrected a 30 year old computer loaded with 3.1, Ami-Pro (IMHO the best word processor of its era) and Lotus 123 - it was all so easy to use and nothing crashed. My biggest gripe about the latest operating systems (I am slowly getting used to Windows 8.1) is that they are not sufficiently backwards compatible to open old documents saved by long defunct programs - which means that our 1980s dream of a truly paperless society will never happen because for documents that need to be kept in perpetuity, the only sure way is to keep a hard copy . . .
