I am still running Mma (ver 2.2.2 enhanced)  under Windows 3.1. Does anyone 
out there have comparisons of Mma under the different versions of Windows 
(Win 3.1, WfW 3.1, Win 95) ?

I've been thinking about upgrading to WfW to get 32 bit file access but I 
am not sure that this will improve Mma's performance since (I think) Mma 
already uses the Win32s to get a 32 bit kernal.  (Mma is by far my most 
demanding app). 

With regard to Windows 95 - I've heard from someone at WRI that Mma may 
actually run more slowly under Win 95 since Win 95 requires so much memory. 

Any advertursome souls out there who have actually tried out Mma with two or 
more of the Windows versions? 

Thanks in advance for any feedback - JP
