Ebay. They're not quite as generous as, say, Apple, who gives away copies of GS/OS 6.0.1, System 7.5.3, etc.

Hehe. *Cough* Use a small distro of Linux instead *Cough* =)

Maybe "**** Small Linux" would work on a computer that uses 3.1. It's only 50MBs, and it has Firefox, Acrobat and a bunch of other stuff packaged with it.

I've seen Windows 3.1 distributed freely on the internet legal, but I don't remember which site was giving it out.

Since 3.1 is not longer supported and considered abandonware by M$ this can be distrubited freely. But i also remember that my first system had a 9600 BPS modem. 28.8k wasnt released until the time that 95 was originally released.
