Now hold on there Keith,

You are right up to a point (and a fine point it may be).

Let's clarify: Windows 3.x is an application running on top of
the DOS (disk operating system). Windows 3.x is not, and never was
intended to be an operating system. Windows 95 on the other hand is
integrated tightly enough that it is considered an operating system.

The differences between Win 3.x and Win 95 are vast. Entire
papers are written in collages on this topic.

Just to set the record straight.

IMNSHO,

Barry
