"How much Win 3.1 / 95 stuff still works under 7?"

Many Windows 2 apps still work under Vista, so I wouldn't be surprised if many ancient stuff still works under Windows 7; one of the reasons for Windows's hideous size is its backwards compatibility. They'd never sell it into businesses if it didn't have the ability to run old crusty software.
