Windows 99 (the South African version) (courtesy of Herby Honigsperger)

It has come to our attention that a few copies of the New South African edition of Windows 99 may have accidentally been shipped outside South Africa. If you have one of the New South African editions you may need some help understanding the commands.
The New South African edition may be recognised by looking at the opening screen. It reads "E-WEENDOWS 99" with a background picture of a Mageu bottle superimposed on a Orlando Pirates flag. It is shipped with a choice of a Black Label or a Toyota Hi-Ace screen saver.
