I was reorganizing my files today when I noticed two screenshots of me running NT 3.51.
I took them to show off to my friends (It's hard to keep people chatting about the imminent doom of exams the next day, now that I think about it, I have one tommorow, so I'll be quick)
But now, I look back and think, wow that looks fun! puTTY, WinRAR, Firefox, Office, Newshell and even some Powertoys working on NT 3.51 is a thing I have never seen, nor will ever see on the Internet. If I can do it without FTP-ing files over and with little knowledge, I think someone with adequate knowledge and much more tools will make it much further and much more usuable. I hope someone tries.
Things I got working:
Opera 3.62 (I loaded onto a .img file and installed lol, in fact thats how I got the rest of the programs on, all through the Internet, no exceptions, no proxies. B) )
Firefox 95 (courtesy of Toastytech )
GetRight (1.5b perhaps, eh, Firefox gets the job done anyways, don't know why I installed)
WinRAR (uh... I don't think I got zip files on th... oh wait no I think I did, ah Stupid memory, I dont even remember what I ate for breakfast)
puTTY (Had high hopes for it, still do. Never managed to try it though.)
Office (97, I think. Never needed it, Had fun nonetheless)
PowerToys for Windows 95 (The biggie, if you will. Never, ever heard anyone try this before, yet I still did anyway. Showed great promise but I don't know how to install INF files on NT 3.51, The Control Panel stuff did not work, only Deskmenu and FlexiCD worked. Deskmenu was handy, but FlexiCD I had no means of testing. Got both working on startup. Me cool boy B) )
I also know everyone is sleeping Right Now, but am lonely. Please Excuse.
Forgive spelling. Am studying in pitch black and have to go quick. Tried my best though. Before I do, here's me browsing on NT! B)
Edit: Whoops, Wrong version of Opera, thanks Joet BERNARD!
