What a fantastic demo!... my days go back to DOS 2 and I've had all the upgrades except Windows 2000. Unfortunately I too have lost my ME disk (it was bad but not THAT bad)

I still have 1.2 up to 7 and win1 up to Vista. I tossed my upgrades after I installed 3.1 then upgrade to 95 then to 98. 98 crashed big time and the idea of re-installing
3 os's just to get back to 98 seemed insane.

Somewhere I have ms unrelesed ???? Neptune???

Still using xp home and pro. I'm tired of learning new os's

That's a great video!

I remember a lot of those. Win 3.11 was the first version of Windows I used, and I only had it because the PC hardware vendor I bought my parts from threw in a free copy. However, whenever I wasn't using my Mac, I usually just ran DOS 6 without loading that strange, annoying Windows thing. Win95 was the first version of Windows I truly enjoyed using.

I still have Win 3.11, Win95, Win98SE, NT4, Win2K, XP Pro, Vista Home Premium, Win7 Pro, and Win 7 Ultimate, all in their original boxes/cases. Have several copies of some of them.

I downloaded/pirated WinME, tried it for a 2 weeks, concluded that it was even worse than 98SE, thought about switching back to the Mac, decided against it, and finally bought Win2K Pro. Been happy with Windows ever since.

Yeah, that's a pretty cool vid. I started w/ Dad's old TRS-80 (Model III I believe), in the 80's. Then in '99 got into I.T. supporting those old w/ 9x machines (what a hassle). Although the old Welcome to Windows 98 Wav rocked. Then worked backwards to Windows 3.1, OS2, DOS etc., then thought, Windows 9x wasn't so bad.

Saw NT Server 3.51 a few times, then NT 4 came out - I remember the NT 4 MCSE craze. Windows Millenium - what a joke, some ppl liked it though. When 2000 came out I was impressed; what a great OS. Was a tad slow booting up/shutting down, but, t'was much more stable & friendly than NT. I supported XP, but personally stayed on 2000 until XP was about 1.5 yrs old.

Vista? Unt uh, you can have it. I remember going to a client trying to get that sh*t working with wireless devices - nothing worked! And there was NO information online about fixing that crap. That's probably the worst part of the job, supporting, or trying to, sh*tty software. I told the customer that this was typical (somewhat, though Vista was REALLY bad initially) of new MS OSes and that he should think of UPgrading to XP from Vista (haha)...nope. He couldn't understand why the new latest & greatest MS OS (Vista at the time) wasn't working like was promised. I told him...hey, ever hear of the CORVAIR? I said, I don't know, I'm not a programmer or a Microsoft marketing executive pushing this sh*t out onto the market (he laughed) to make a buck.

Just another stupid saying...

He missed out Windows NT as well. Probably becasue it would have really screwed up the backward comparability thing as it was the first version that did not run and top of DOS as it was a full 32 bit OS and and predates both Windows 95 and Windows 98.

Upgrading Windows 98 from Windows NT could be seen as a backward step.

Should add that is not my video i only got sent the link.
Myself I can remember using windows 95 a lot and I seem to remember windows 3.1 also and the rest after that including windows ME
But we have come a long way now and its scary as to what you will be able to do on a computer in the future.
