For old school PC enthusiasts/collectors

This CD from 1991 entitled Nautilus Intro 6. It was acquired for free from... No one in my family remembers. Nautilus was intended to be a multimedia magazine for PC. For reasons I could not find through Google, the company apparently no longer exists. Coincidentally there is a newer magazine under the same name, but it's a science magazine that is unrelated.

The disc contained (at the time) top of the line programs and decent yet fun shareware games for DOS and Windows 3.1 for users to interact with to show what computers were capable of. An excerpt from the introduction:
"With over a year's experience providing the CD ROM-based multimedia information service for and about your PC, we on the NAUTILUS Team are particularly excited about the potentials of the Windows multimedia extensions. We believe in delivering what you need as well as what you'll enjoy, and the sights and sounds of multimedia extensions make that prospect even more fun."

Considering the disc was distributed for free and requests the user to subscribe to the full magazine that no longer exists, I would assume uploading it for archival purposes wouldn't be against any rules. It doesn't hurt to double check though. Also, since I haven't explored everything on the disc and everything uploaded to TIZ , there is a possibility of a game or two being on there that aren't archived here already, albeit shareware games. (I could check using the search function to confirm, but it's almost 3 A.M. where I live so I'm falling asleep as I'm typing.) Unfortunately we never subscribed to receive more discs from them so this is the only one I have available. I could hardly find any useful information on the company or CD magazine series via Google, so I can only provide the information that I have as well as the disc itself.

I don't believe I've met the requirements for uploading yet as I am a mostly passive member, but I am only 5 posts away from 15 as of this post. I would like to add this apparently obscure disc to the growing list of everything, even if only one other person would enjoy exploring what innovations and games 1991 brought to the home computer.
