Windows 3.1 rebooted: Microsoft's DOS destroyer turns 20

Re: How did it win?

I went with market share but, you are right. Without all of those gamers with jobs, getting that market share would not have been as easy. IBM inexplicably created an "open" or non-proprietary hardware platform, so video cards and games were P.C. compatible long before Windows was an actual O/S, ... (and Microsoft benefitted greatly).

btw, I still think minesweeper rocks.
