Just bought a new in box Windows NT 4.0 Workstation for $16.

That's a good price for a cool find, especially if it is in good condition.

Got this Office 95 standard floppy set for $3 in average condition.
It must have been fun when one of them malfunctioned during install (#29 for example).

Photos show it still in shrink wrap, however the box has a bit of crushing here and there, from what I see in the seller photos. Overall not too bad though.

This took forever to arrive, but it finally did. Everything coming out of the U.S. has been super slow to arrive for me (still waiting on a couple things since May), but anything coming from any other part of the world seems to still arrive within a reasonable amount of time. Meh. Oh well.

I wanted 4.x as it still supports Windows 3.1. Though unfortunately this copy does not include the 4.0.1 update which fixes issues running on machines with more than 1GB of RAM, but that's not the end of the world really. Still can apply that update separately.

I have very fond memories of photoshop 4.x too

Me as well. One of my first jobs as a software developer was for a small company that made "catalogs on diskette", think of them as a websites on a floppy disk. This was early '90. The project was for a company that made and sold fuses for use in electronics. I had scan hundreds of images from their paper catalog, cropped, resized, patch up and converted to a 5 color gray scale image (other 10 colors where used for other things like UI and graphs). And, I had to do all the programming of course. Anyhow, I think this was with Photoshop 3 on Windows 3.11. If I'm not mistaken, Photoshop 4 was Windows 95 era and Photoshop 5 (my favorite release which I still use 'til this day on my Windows 2000 build, was around Windows 98).

Yes, fond memories...

I had the floppy disk version as a kid, the CDROM is much better!
