Back in the early days of cm3, I did run some Modula3 stuff on Windows 95/98 before NT4.0.
My recollection is that Win98 fared better than Win95, but that all was much better on NT4.0.
I seem to recall having more trouble with multithreaded programs on Win9x and also the garbage collector.
I think you had to run with @M3novm parameter to disable virtual motion on Win9x.

I still have a working windows 95 system.  I turn it on once in a blue moon.
It dual-boots Windows 95 and linux.  If it would really be useful, I could try 
Moduls-3-ing on it, but it is probably not be worth the effort.

I've never figured out waht Juno is supposed to do.  I tried running it once, and 
it was most mysterious.
