The 386 was widely used for Delphi 1 with 16 bit and Windows 3.1 / 3.11.
There you had the problem with the 64k  chunks.

For Windows 95 with 32 bit the 386 was to slow.
You had to buy a 486 [The last one without a fan]
Or a Pentium  I.

So my post was not exact enough.

Yeah at the time of Win 3.1, I did not bother programming under Windows. Rather do the interface myself.  :D

That wasn't a problem of the 386 however, cause that already supported paging in contrast to the 286 that only supported segmented memory. The problem was that both Delphi 1 and Windows 3.1(1) did not support anything else than segmentation.
