Windows 3.x Is No More, *sigh*

I remember the moment I saw Microsoft Windows 3.1 back in the early 1990's and was blown away. But now it is no more :-(

Interesting potted history from Computerworld, did you know that it "it lived on as an embedded operating system":
... it was used in devices such as cash tills and ticketing systems.

It is also used as the embedded operating system that powers the in-flight entertainment systems on some Virgin and Qantas long-haul jets.

For those that care, Windows XP support runs out in April 2009
