Running Windows NT and Windows 95 Applications

Not too long ago, there was not a lot to write about applications written for Windows NT. Compared to the number of applications available for Windows 3.1, you could accurately describe the selection of Windows NT-specific applications as scarce. With the increasing popularity of Windows NT, as well as the launch of Windows 95, the introduction of applications for Windows NT has dramatically increased. This doesn't mean that makers of software applications have developed a sudden interest in Windows NT. Microsoft has cleverly established support for Windows NT as a requirement for any Windows 95 applications to qualify for the official Windows 95 logo.
