Default I cannot believe I bought this..... NT 3.51

eBay NT Workstation 3.51

Yes, I got it for $.99 Lucky, aren't I?

Probably the best version of NT besides Win 2k. I have always like the look of Windows 3.xx, and the stability of the NT OS, so it will work great on the ancient computers I picked up at goodwill last night for $5 bucks. I swear I have problems.... buying old obsolete computers and OSes.

My job had me running a PC with a Celeron processor and Windows NT up until about three months ago.

Obsolete computers are awesome. Look up Commander Keen, it'd go nicely with your vintage PCs

Already have Commander Keen. Along with many older games including Wolfenstein, Duke Nukem, etc.

Let'* see.... I have a IBM Aptiva 166MMX I just picked up last night for $5, a Compaq Presario All-in-one I picked up last night for $5, a ThinkPad 760c (Pentium 120), a ThinkPad 760XD (Pentium MMX 166), a IBM desktop in the closet, I think its a 166MMX, 2 old *** IBMs in the basement, iPaq H3835, and my Daily ones, a Quicksilver 2002 G4 and a ThinkPad 570E PIII 500. I know I have more, I just don't feel like listing it.

haha, awesome. I have one of those old ThinkPads as well, it was my sister'* first computer.

Old computers and old games are more than a little fun to play with. I think it'd be fun to have a basement dungeon set up with a ton of them

Yeah, the guy tried to screw me over with a broken Compaq laptop. Hinges were broken on the screen, and it froze up 3 times on me at the BIOS POST screen when I went to look at it.

Well 5 bucks for laptops is not at all much to spend but where do you have all the space for all these electronics. My local goodwill is a ripoff they would charge at least 50 bucks for a 483sx based laptop
