Happy birthday, Windows 3.1 | PC Gamer

I’ve been told that something called Windows 3.1 not only once existed, but also that it turns 30 this year. Despite being relatively short lived, it turns out this updated version of Windows 3 made some big steps, though they’ve gone a little unrecognised, and were a bit before some of us were using PCs. So, Happy 30th birthday Windows 3.1, this is your life.

According to The Register (opens in new tab), Windows 3.1 launched on April 6, 1992 as successor to Windows 3 and brought with it some pretty notable changes. It came on a good old (surprisingly stiff in their casings) floppy disks and is said to be the first version of Windows available on CD ROM.
