What are you talking about? As soon as they try to open a Word document, they're shot. Open several documents at once and see it grind to a halt. Navigate a large document and see it grind to a halt. Lay out a table? No chance. Copy and paste charts from Excel? Nope. And then there's no Start menu, no obvious search function, no obvious document locations. Windows 3.11 is almost as alien to most users these days as Workbench is.

Essentially, both a Windows 3.11 machine, and a Workbench 3.1 machine with equivalent software, will offer similar levels of productivity in a modern office, i.e., very little. So I don't see what point you're trying to make.
