What applications?  I have a couple of DOS applications whose memory managers are not compatible with any version of Windows.  I have to keep a DOS/Windows 3.11 machine around to run them.
Bill HerdeOwnerCommented:
Agreed, Which applications.  I also have a couple that connect to com ports for machine controls. dosbox and other dos shells break at the api for the com port.  They simply will not work on anything past windows 3.1.
