Default A simple question

Does anyone know where I can get an ISO disk image of Windows 2.1 or UNIX System V?
Is 2.1 Abandonware even? Or does Micro$oft still own it?

Technically abandonware is a bit of a dodgy concept - technically it is still illegal, it's just that it's so old no-one will know or care. MS do still own it, and you probably won't find it around in many places, there's not much call for it!

I can do Windows 3.1 no problem. I never even had Win 2.1. Hit me up off the board Maybe we can work something out.

It is the look that I like. A primitive attempt at making a coulored OS. I collect these stuff like mad "The OS Collector". Getting a Mac OS 6 and under in coulor is like hitting gold. Win 1.1 is awesome too.
