"Windows 2.10 was the first version of Windows to provide the option of installing third-party mice, and also the first to require a hard disk."

Not true - I have a Windows 2.03 setup program that one of the choices of which drive to install on was a hard disk. 12:06, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

I don't understand how that makes it not true. It says Windows 2.1 is the first one to require (need) a hard disk. You're saying Windows 2.0 can also use a hard disk. It's not the same thing as needing one. Josh the Nerd 14:50, 25 May 2007 (UTC) Josh

new screenshot needed[edit]

If anybody can get a screenshot of Windows 2.1x running in a virtual machine much like the Windows 2.0 one, I think it would look much better. You can clearly see the curved glass of the CRT monitor and the refresh lag. The color is also a bit dim. However this may be a challenge as there would be very few people who actually still have a copy of Windows 2.1! Da rulz07 08:11, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

If someone would like to do this, has a copy of an older version of DOS, but does not have a copy of Windows, go to and download a copy, and destroy it after use. Douglas C (talk) 08:04, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
