Hello anyone know where I can find Windows 3.11 Technical Specs and
Programmer Guides. I am considering making a "compatable"
open source version for FreeDos. But I need to know that the information
is available. Like Reactos is for 95/98
I am replying some 12 years later...

For anyone who wants to recreate Windows 3.1, you want to read Undocumented DOS (2nd edition), Undocumeted Windows, and Windows Internals. All of these resources were available on the used book market at the time of the question. Now, most, if not even more, are available to read on the archive.org library. Forgive me for not giving direct links.

There are even more books from the time period relevant to the task, only I haven't read them yet, so I can't name drop.

The SDK and DDK are also available and relevant.

Good luck.

Appatently Windows 3.11 works fine now with FreeDOS. You can even open a DOS prompt.

Here a reply after more than 13 years from Soedesh! I (still) don't know any thing about programming for Windows 3.1x but recently I am re-installing some older machines with this OS.
In my search for some drivers I bumped into this website and this thread.
I see that Watler replied earlier with an url of mine, but this url is not working for some years now.
I might restore it someday (i still own the domain) and meanwhile it can be found here:

https://home.deds.nl/~soedesh/20.htm/

This url is only one letter different from my oldest Homepage, which was hosted on DDS (De Digitale Stad) in the Netherlands.
The Wayback machine also has older versions of my Homepage, but the link given here is the most recent one.

So what is the intent?
To make a system that can replace Win3.11 (ReactOS-ish)? Or a system that is like Win3.11(Environment capable/wine-ish)?

Over configure your OS or write your own? That is the question.
