Could it run 32bit applications - No. Could it protect one application from a crash in another - No. Did it support preemptive multi-tasking - No.
Sure it couldn't, and what mainstream OS could? Windows 3.1 more or less became the kind of GUI revolution that was necessary - that in itself was innovation, you know it's like saying first success T-model from Ford did not have ABS, sat-nav, came only in black colour so it means it was bad, no it wasn't - for the time it was innovative and revolutionary even.
