Even a lowly 386 laptop should run IMS REAL/32. It worked for IBM, they
licensed it for POS terminals.

Windows 3.11 is stable when configured right. A virtual memory bug hit
Pentium and later chips. They fixed it in Windows 98. I can't find the
reference now, but it was online at one time. Probably gone now.
For me, Windows 3.11 is stable without virtual memory. With plenty of
RAM it's not a problem. If you only have 4 MB, that may not work.
