There was talk about Intergraph support. If you get "Computer Graphics Magazine" from the announcement time, there is a paragraph there about planned support that was dropped. I may edit this later with an actual quotation.

hardware?[edit]

This article (and others in the series) should document the minimum hardware specs to run the systems described. JulesH 17:53, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

N-Ten[edit]

As the "NT" in Windows NT has commonly been recgnized as "New Technology," that section seems like a fraud, perhaps vandalism. Still, seeing as the area makes references to the references below, a rollback might be needed, instead of simple deletion. Krayt 08:59, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Upon further reading, the references corolate, my mistake. Krayt 09:04, 28 February 2007 (UTC)

Advanced Server[edit]

Why did the NT 3.1 range have an Advanced Server, but no Server? Was it originally planned, then scrapped? 203.5.217.3 05:15, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm guessing the name Advanced Server was just an odd naming choice and doesn't mean it's equivalant to what's later called Advanced Server.

It was probably for marketting purposes. Windows NT has always been a direct competitor to Unix operating systems. Declaring Windows NT as being an "Advanced" Server might initially seem more attractive, as silly as it might sound. --Mike 08:04, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

IE[edit]

"Microsoft offered Internet Explorer starting with IE2, and released up to Internet Explorer 5.0 for Windows NT 3.x."

The components get installed but IE5 doesnt actually run.... NT 3.x cant use IEs above IE(3 i think?) fully, because the 16 bit versions dont work, and the later 32 bit versions rely on the windows 95 type explorer shell to work properly. and yes, this has actually been tried and is documenteds. see http://www.hpcfactor.com/support/patching/winnt351/

"* Although you may not actively use Microsoft Internet Explorer, installing it updates system components and security."

Article review[edit]

The article gives the illusion that it benefits from a wide array of reputable sources. However, on closer examination it is noted that there are two primary work used throughout the article (Zachary and Custer). Additionally the article relies heavily on primary research. I would recommend finding more neutral and a wider variety of sources. This, among other changes, will contribute towards improving the article. EagerToddler39 (talk) 05:50, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

News Protocol[edit]

The latest stable version date in the infobox uses this page as a reference. Is anyone able to check that? Is anyone able to archive that somewhere that can be accessed over HTTP? Zell Faze (talk) 13:59, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

ᴡindows® ɴᴛ 3.2 as first member of the ɴᴛ family ?[edit]

I just found a runnable version of ᴡindows® ɴᴛ 3.2 on qemu with (ᴄ) 1990‑1991 Microsoft Corp in winver.exe. 2A02:8420:508D:CC00:56E6:FCFF:FEDB:2BBA (talk) 10:24, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

32-bit operating system[edit]

The article states that "Windows NT 3.1 is a 32-bit operating system developed by Microsoft.", but Windows NT 3.1 is also available for DECs 64-bit Alpha. Did it run in 32-bit mode on Alpha? 77.10.243.91 (talk) 17:26, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
