nope. have you ever noticed when someone list windows versions, they usually miss WinMe? it is almost as if it never existed :-)

Yes, I ran into one real recently, but having a tough time of it.

Yep. This is what happens when you give Windows programmers whisky..

I would be curious to how you would rate the different versions of Windows starting with Win95 and a scale of 1 to 10.
Win95 I give a 7 (poor usb)
Win98SE I would give a 9 (one serial for as many PC's as you like with no online activation)
Win2000 I give a 7 (poor gaming support mainly)
WinME I give a 5 (no one seems to like it)
WinXP Pro I give a 10 (full customization and a neat non-destructive reinstall feature as well as fast file transfers).
WinVista 7 again (just too buggy poor search poor file transfer speeds and poor tweakability)
Win7 I give a reluctant 9 (much better than Vista but transfers still slow and seems
to be hard to customize (full row highlight, stupid Libraries and a Windows Explorer navigation pane that will not stay at the top).
Win8 (never used it)
Win10 (never used it)

I knew a couple ppl running ME over the years and I dont think they had any issues with it....

I guess it depends what ya try and run on it......

Everything started going downhill when they moved from DOS 3.3

There's a heap of versions missing from that list...:rotflmao:
I'm not going to give an /10 for each but can pretty easily rank from best to worst.
Here you go for the ones I can remember using/worked on/own (not including Windows Server O/S):
Code:

Rank | Version
 17    Windows 3.1
 9    Windows for workgroups 3.11
 12    Windows NT 3.51
 16    Win95
 10    Win95a (OSR1)
 5    Win95b (OSR2)
 8    Win95c (OSR2.5)
 11    Windows NT 4.0
 13    Win98
 1    Win98SE
 6    Win2000
 18    Win ME
 4    WinXP
 14    Win Vista
 2    Win7
 15    Win8
 7    Win 8.1
 3    Win10

nb: can still lay my hands on installs for all but 1 (Windows 8.0) of the above :)

where is win3.0 on your list :-) sorry could not resist.

I was looking at that list thinking how much I have forgotten about them. the little tidbits of info regarding the differences. In addition it reminds me of things I were doing during those times. like running a bbs when win95 was released and trying to get it to work in dos mode, , how I took off of work to get vista on the day it was released, how, I was doing this and that... really makes me feel old.
