I have Calmira in Windows for Workgroups 3.1 on a 386 dual-booting 
with Windows NT 3.1. But I seldom power it up, and when I do I 
usually boot NT. Both OS's are on my network and can share the 24-
pin dot-matrix printer connected to the 386. They also read the CD-
ROM drives on other systems on the network.

As for B&W, I have an old Toshiba laptop (I think it's a T1000SE) 
with no hard drive, a total of 3MB of RAM (of which all but the 
essential 640K is set up as a virtual HD), and an '086 type 
processor. The display is CGA (not VGA) monochrome. By connecting a 
parallel-port Zip-100 drive I've been able to plod (not run) Windows 
3.0 on it in real mode, but no useful applications are supported 
that way, let alone Calmira. I almost never power it up these days.
