Why this Linux user is now using Windows 3.1

This is the story of how a Linux user...switched to Windows 3.1. At least in part.

You read that right. Windows 3.1. Yes. That Windows 3.1. The 16-bit one that came out in 1992...over 20 years ago. Many of you will replay, "WHY?!?! Are you INSANE?!?!" And that would be a perfectly valid and warranted reply, punctuation and all.

To answer that, allow me to back up for a moment.

Some months back I wrote a two-part series of articles that started off as a musing along the lines of "Why do we need to upgrade our technology so often?" That morphed into "Bryan tries to live in DOS. Full time." Those articles were quite silly, but, in the end, I found that properly utilizing DOS, within an emulated environment, provided some unique and interesting benefits.
