Used it sparingly, although never on my computers
1992–1993
Interestingly enough, this was the last version of Windows I used on a day to day basis!

Secondary school still had it in 98-99, and it could be coerced to run games, unlike their managed '95.
1993–2001
Used sparingly on other peoples' computers until I was given a badass early 90s era Dell laptop by a neighbor going through his tech trash in 2001. Used Win 3.1 on that for about a half hour, then promptly overwrote it with a really old Slackware build.
1993–1996
1993–1995
I first saw Windows 3.1 on my friend's brand new Pentium PC when I still had a 486. I was so jealous at the time.

Used it along with MS-DOS when I was a kid.
1993–1997
1993–1995
My first computer.
1994–1996
Used it for work and the odd video game. Favorite video game were these two airplane turn based games. One had jets and the other had WWII prop planes.
1994
Fond memories of my favourite arcade game Street Fighter 2 actually running on it as well as being mezmerised by the installed tiled wallpapers.
1994–1998
My first computer also had a 3.1 OS, which started by typing win in the command line of DOS.
1994–1998
1994–1996
I don't think this belongs on a list of operating systems, but since it's here: I used it.
1994–1997
1994–1996
1994–1995
My first machine was a 386 with 4MB of RAM running Windows 3.1. It was purchased for $10 from a junk lot by my grandparents.

We bought our first modern PC just before Windows 95 came out. So we had Windows 3.11 until I upgraded us to Windows 98.
1995–
1995–1998
The first operating system I was exposed to. It gave me many of the habits that I still have to this day, like trying to use 8.3 filenames whenever possible.
