Thanks to Android Central for the heads-up about this.
Yes, it’s true! Windows 3.1 on Android is the latest addition to the “let’s-see-what-all-we-can-get-Windows-3.1-running-on” benchmark. An Android enthusiast by the name of “drraccoon” thought it would be a fun idea to try to install Windows 3.1 on Android and the result is an ultimately useless but really cool (in a geeky sort of way) implementation of an ancient OS on a mobile device! Check out the screen shot below:

I don’t want to steal his glory by posting his method here (it’s really simple), but I *will* make a contribution by providing you a download link to the Windows 3.1 ISO which contains the installation files you will need should you choose to give this a shot yourself (they’re in a self-extracting .exe file I created with WinRAR, so I know this is virus-free).

Now, go visit the source to obtain everything else you need to install Windows 3.1 on Android and feel free to post your results and/or ideas to try as I would certainly be interested to hear of everyone’s progress — especially if any of you give Windows 95 (something drraccoon also seems interested in attempting) a shot or some other legacy Microsoft program/game!
