OpenWindows 3 - SunOS 4.1.4
Screen Shots

OpenWindows 3 is included with SunOS 4.1.4 (AKA Solaris 1.1.2). This version is using TME 0.6's Sun-4 emulation mode that works properly with color.

OpenWindows 3 Splash
OpenWindows 3 starting up.

OpenWindows 3 Default Desktop
Probably the biggest visible difference over OpenWindows 2 is that is it includes a help system.

By default a console, a file manager window, and the desktop help are launched at startup.

OpenWindows 3 Help
Pressing the "help" key on the Sun keyboard can bring up a help dialog with help about the currently selected item. (TME did not map the help key to the PC keyboard so I had to add that)

If you want to see the entire help file, I converted it to a PDF: desktop.pdf

OpenWindows 3 Control Panel
The properties here have color settings and adds international settings for management of number and date formatting.

OpenWindows 3 Audio
Apparently the Sun-4 hardware included the ability to play sound. This version of SunOS comes with some sample sounds and an audio player. Needless to say this didn't work in the emulator. I don't even think NetBSD even has an audio system.

OpenWindows 3 Apps
And a few of the OpenWindows 3 apps.

Browsing the Web - or not
Almost browsing the web with SunOS 4.1.4. Never could get networking to work in TME. Probably for the best, you don't want to know what the web looks like in Netscape 4 these days.

Note that Netscape uses a completely different UI widget set from that of OpenWindows.
