Creator of the Malware Museum Jason Scott already has another Archive.org project out: The Windows 3.x Showcase. Featuring 49 pieces of emulated software from the early 90s, it's intended to show off the wide, wonderful range of products developers were putting out in those early days.

Most of it is games: Ski Free, WinRisk, Win Pool, the Ms. Pac-Man knock-off Ms. Chomp, and the like, but some intriguing non-game software is on display, too: a Windows benchmark by PC Magazine, a MIDI music program, a resource monitor, a Windows 95 demo, and more.

You can try it all out for yourself via the source link below. Only your browser is required.
