    Ive been following a How To on installing windows 3.1 on the Droid and I got it done using a How to, a ISO file and ADOSBOX (a app you can download).

    And Ive got it running... Pretty well in fact :)

    Windows 3.1 on aDosBox

    Thats the How To, and find a ISO for windows 3.1 and thats all you need. Follow the instructions and with some ingenuity you can run it like i did, it runs surprisingly well. The only major problem (its quite major) is the touch screen/mouse. Because the screen doubles as a mouse it tends to get stuck 'clicking' things. Like it will get stuck expanding/contracting and its soooo hard to get undone. Other then that it runs well enough. It has no sound and such, and its more of a novelty then anything, but rodents revenge is a fun game to play :)

    I got a video on my girls droid if you want some proofs :p

    Post the video. Not for "proof"... no need to prove yourself to anyone else. Especially on the internet. But definitely post it to satisfy those of us who are curious.

    Personally, I don't think I would ever bother with windows when I already have an awesome OS... But it is that whole "Forbidden fruit" syndrome. You've piqued my interest.

    Ill try to do it again tomorrow.. The main problem is that the screen is super bright recording (recording a droid with a droid lol) but ill try and get it posted. Its more of a fun thing to play with, thats why I did it.
