Hi All!

 

After reading the following article...
https://www.thurrott.com/windows/windows-10/3942/microsoft-teases-a-few-minor-changes-in-windows-10

 

I decided to experiment for myself.

 

It Works!

 

***** You can run Office 95 in windows 10 Build 10130!

 

What have you tried?

 

***** Requires a valid copy of office 95

 

Have Fun

Well it's more likely to worj with Widows 10 32 bit then 64 bit.  It could work in both but most likely to work in 32 bit.

@orlbuckeye

 

All MSO 95 Components were 32bit.

Office 97 might also work?

I have a gut feeling MSO 97 will work as well as MSO XP,  2000, 2003, 2007, 2010.

 

Support will be non-existent of course, (except for MSO 2010 and later) and I wouldn't recommend a person using older versions of MSO for everyday purposes.

 

But it's fun to find out and break the monotony of fallout created by the upcoming release of an OS!

Okay, so then it must be able to run a DOS window, too.  NOW I finally am interested to install my Insider iso's.  I love Win95, and I have Plus!.

 

Which, honeys, works the same way in Linux via Wine:  you just right click on the Themes.exe file you installed in username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Plus! Be sure to have all your .themes from XP or 98 or 7, copied into that folder.  I already got the DOSbox window up and running, so I can keep my beloved Lotus 123 for DOS.

 

I just did all that this past week, and am getting ready to change themes to increase font size in Mint 17's deployment under Wine, of MS Office 2003.  But I have a TON of Win95 CDs and installation disks, and at least four Win98 machines I keep running, which WERE Win95 machines.

 

This is gonna be interesting.  Would love to stop having need to complain about Windows.  Still need Linux for what Windows can't do, but hey: two's company.
