I've got a VMWare config/disk for Windows 3.1 just for AmiPro 3.1. 
Doesn't ever seem to crash (although I haven't written too much

Word 97 SR-2a crashes once every 30 minutes.  I wrote ~80 pages for
Samba Unleashed in ~100 hours and had no less than ~20 crashes, 2
resulted in complete destructions of both the .doc and .bak files
(and I did have "fast/background saves" OFF and "create backups"
ON).  The only reason I survived is because I stop every 15 minutes,
copy the files and backups to 2 different systems (that I am NOT
currently working on) and use Xdelta to reverse binary delta the
file locally on the system.

Not exactly "mission critical software" IMHO.  ;->>>

P.S.  Unfortunately, Ami Pro doesn't work well in WINE.  Oh well.
