Windows from the past!!

Those ancient aliens have something to answer for...
Bill Phillips: At least 3.1 worked....more than you say for Vista grin
I love all that ivy. 3.1 lives...
Bill Phillips: It looks so ancient now!

This is a wowser to me..

Amazing how that ivy takes control.
Bill Phillips: Terrible stuff really does untold damage to buildings

I will go along with this: windows training sorely needed here alright!
Bill Phillips: The video is a hoot. Windows 3.1 actually worked as I recall and didn't need about 2 gig of memory to open a file!

Real 'Windows' are a fascinating subject for photographers - and this is a fine observation - I saw such a once overgrown window in Oxford, nature is often more dominant than we think.
Bill Phillips: And destructive to our buildings Philine.
1995 I had my first experience of having a PC. Windows 3.1 was my fist operating system.. and DOS (daft operating system) was still part of the woodwork.

Did you wear jumpers like that Bill
Bill Phillips: My first PC ran on DOS5 back in 1990. I upgraded it to 3.1 and then got one with Windows 95!

I love your windows but not so sure about Glenn, especially in that jumper!!!
Bill Phillips: A singularly unpleasant jumper.

Nice connection Bill. I hate seeing creeper growing over the stone for it is so destructive.
Bill Phillips: Terrible stuff to have on stonework and yet people plant it....mind you i've got ivy growing up me fence!

I know the evils of ivy - vile stuff my wife keeps encouraging.

Windows 3.1 - those were the days - at least it is open architecture unlike Apple.

That guy looks like Howard out of "Fresh Meat"
Bill Phillips: Typical
No idea but it is clearly a spoof but it made me laugh
Those were the days. I did my word processing, database and spreadsheet certificate back in 1998 and got my first computer in 2003.

It's a shame ivy doesn't do houses any good because it's quite attractive.
Bill Phillips: I started with MSDOS 5! and did an upgrade to windows 3.1 on a computer with 1 megabite as opposed to the one I have now which has 4 gigabytes and is out of date!!
Very interesting image. I like it.
Oh such memories. Windows 3.1 - so simple, so easy, it did exactly what it said it would do, and more. It always put files where YOU wanted them put, not where it thought they should be (like Vista and Windows 7). And it ran on a 20MB hard drive with 254 MB RAM. What was a GB then, or USB come to that?
Bill Phillips: Sadly Microsoft have produced bloated operating systems. All i really want is a system that allows me to open my programmes and file things where I want them.
I'm with Jobs here, Bill, windows has no style at all!
Bill Phillips: Trouble is PCs are cheap and Macs are ridiculously expensive so I just live with the crap that is windows grin
Very, very nice shot. Is that whiteness frost? The video is hilarious.
Bill Phillips: I think it is probably Lichen. I enjoyed the video too
I can imagine something spooky and sinister happening behind those windows, Bill. [[Shiver]]
Bill Phillips: Not everything is like Steven King Beverly grin

Hahah!! Love the Youtube thing! I thought it was for real at first! I used to used Windows 3.1, too!

I like the growth over the window frame. I hope the lead thieves don't find this place.
Bill Phillips: It worked and didn't need gigabytes of memory just to launch Excel!
Love the window Bill! 3.1 looks like an antique now grin
Bill Phillips: I had forgotten the flying windows screen saver.
A fine shot Bill. I remember Windows 3.1, but I was well in to DOS before that, I had no choice, it was thrust on me by my job.
Bill Phillips: I started with MSDOS 5 as I recall.

As an Apple man I think the only worthwhile windows are in the top shotsmile (nice details)
Bill Phillips: PCs are cheap Windows is crap but Apple are just too expensive for me john
Superb Bill. I love your title!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard
Lovely colours and textures Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Fred
That is a wonderful shot. It looks like it could be from the house behind the Bates Motel in Psycho.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Michael. I can see what you mean!
Oh that's a marvelous shot!!!
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly smile
