Disclaimer - I have not run CT with Win95. I use DOS and Win NT...
Warren - I strongly recommend NOT going to Windows 95.
There are many reasons, but the two most significant are it's lack of
maturity and stability and the inability to (easily) set it up to dual boot
I work in the PC business and follow it and other OS issues closely.
If you want a new OS, go to Windows NT V3.51. You can dual boot with DOS
(and Windows 3.1) as a fallback. Microsoft didn't bother to make dual boot
available with Win 95 so there is no easy fallback.
(Note: There is a complex way of installing Win95 for dual boot that
requires gymnastics to switch (copying entire directories around, etc.)).
Also, none of the OS's are real time oriented, so that sending CW
is problematic. I have not tried NT in this respect, but it has a good
chance, as the priority of an individual task can be set very high.
