Specs: Windows 7
Hi guys, REALLY long time no see... I still have my old laptop SAMSUNG 386SX / 20MHZ - 2MB RAM - 80MB HD - DOS 6.22 - WFWG 3.11 & Calmira 3, and a lot of abandonware games & old useful software, I still love and use this machine... and I am wondering, what's about Calmira? Is still updated? I've looking for some info about new updates of Calmira but no positive results. Calmira gave me a really good experience some years ago and I've learned a lot about computers because WFWG & Calmira. Right now I am a little bit melancolic about old times, where computing was a challenging issue and I want to update my old laptop to it's very high possibly potential.

Somebody could comment about old times and if there are some news on Calmira or WFWG 3.11?

As always... thans in advance.

PS. Glad to see you still here JAM, you've saved my ass a lot of times :)

WFWG 3.11 has been updated many times - it's now called Windows 7 and is a very different OS altogether.

Calmira - latest version was released 2008 for Windows Vista:

I suppose this forum is a good gauge for discovering how many new people are taking up the hobby of old computing. It must not be very many. The Win 3.x section gets a post maybe once a month...

As soon as a post about how to tweak autoexec.bat or config.sys comes up, all of us who scan this, jump on such questions quicker than a duck on a june bug.

Managing an old machine, and getting it running well, putting nice curtains on it (such as Calmira) has not taken off as a fun hobby - at least at the moment. Most people want it to run on the internet, which it certainly can, but find the process of doing so too hard if you are a novice to Win 3.11.

My old 3.11 machine runs on the internet very well on broadband. Oddly, it is DOS in which the world wide web is best viewed - albeit using a text-browser. Unfortunately, graphical browsers, such as Internet Explorer, choke on almost everything that is Web 2.0 - as it has been coined. However, with DOSLYNX or the normal LYNX browser, you can cruise the web effectively.

So thanks for making some activity in the forum. Something just to show that we are still on call for any person needing help setting up an old PC.
