    Sort of a project of showing all windows from the first to the last. Pretty informative.

    Nice job.
    It's funny to think I've used most of the versions of Windows you showed and am much younger than a lot of people here.

    I've used up to 2000 I think. then I went to xp for a while, and now I have vista. We still have some old windows lying around and still use them for things.

    Also, I didn't show that, it was someone else.

    I'm surprised how well it went actually, i've never been much of a fan of upgrading, i've always gone the backup/format/install route. May give it a go next time though.

    I From that video I have used Windows 3.1 all the way through to 7, and also MS-DOS 5.

    Out of curiosity where abouts does Windows ME fit in? I assume just before or after Win2000? (i have vague memories of my parents computer using it and running into countless problems)

    Holy shit I've used all those operating systems at some point (mostly last year when I decided to spend all my time in networking learning about legacy hardware and software)
    Damn that looks fun though......(Upgrading repeatedly is fun looking...is there something wrong with me?)

    I vividly remember either upgrading from 95 to 98 or buying a new computer that had 98 on it. (I don't recall which, but I do recall being extremely interested, which is probably no coincidence.)

    I think I transitioned from MS-DOS to Windows 3.0, Win3.1, then 95, 98+98SE, to XP, and now Win7 x64. Didn't use 2000 or Vista, nor any Windows prior to 3.0.






    Thanks for making me feel old.

    Did you not read the annotations at all? He clearly put in there the reason he skipped ME, and the reasons other versions were avoided (only the most mainstream/popular OS)

    After watching this I decided to set Windows Classic on my computer for a little bit.

    Very nostalgic.
