I just installed Windows 3.0 on my IBM 5155 after an upgrade to 640k of RAM. Any suggestions which applications for Windows 3.0 I should try?

Wow.. that sounds slow in my mind. Any idea how much memory you have left to run anything? You could try an IRC client or light web browser but I'm not sure off hand what wouldn't require more memory than that. Someone here might have a good idea on some early software that finally required Windows to be loaded. Otherwise I typically ended up exiting to dos to run things.
