Home to one of the largest public repositories of abandonware and pre-release software on the web, as well as a small online community.
WinWorld was created with one purpose in mind: to share and preserve abandonware and pre-release software that has long since fallen out of common use for the public good.

Without a doubt the most popular feature of WinWorld is our freely accessible software library. Currently our collection is around 200GB, consisting of alpha, beta and abandonware operating systems and applications, as well as other miscellaneous software and documentation which may be of interest.
