Would have to be because I love nothing more than to just tinker with old and esoteric operating systems - and find out what makes them tick. On the virtual machine team I am known as the person who is most likely to know why obscure operating system XYZ has some oddity in it.
Needless to say I am addicted to Jonathan Maltz's page on 'What works on Virtual PC 2004' (Update 8/5/2011: Unfortunately this site is no longer functional) and am constantly checking his RSS feed to see what the latest submission is.
So from time to time I will post some shots of old / odd operating systems I have setup in VM's along with a commentary of what it took to get them up and running / any odd facts I know about them.

It would be 14 months until Microsoft eventually released Windows 1.01 - which included some minor bug fixes - to the general public. Tips for running Windows 1.01 under Virtual PC 2004 include:
Version Note 8/5/2011: This post was originally written for Virtual PC 2004. However both of these operating systems work just as well under Virtual PC 2007 and Windows Virtual PC.
