   Win95 sports the cool new Explorer Desktop, in an attempt to be more
   Mac-like. Try to forget what you know about Program Manager, File
   Manager, Print Manager, etc because very little of it applies!
   
   Win 3.1 programs will run like they used to; the window might look a
   bit different, and there might be some extra buttons on the border,
   but they will work otherwise.
   
   Get used to using your right mouse button. On an Amiga, the right
   button was a "menu" button which brought up a hidden menu. On
   OS/2, it brings up menus for each object you click on. On Win95,
   it acts like the OS/2 right-click except it pretty much works on
   anything; window title bars, the Start Menu, any kind of icon,
   properties sheets, whatever.
   
   Win 3.1 programs run in a single process under Win95, cooperatively
   multitasking as they always did since Windows/386. This means one Win
   3.1 app can suspend the entire Win 3.1 session. In fact, one Win 3.1
   app can suspend all of Win95! This is purely for compatibility.
