 9     Windows for workgroups 3.11
 12    Windows NT 3.51
 16    Win95

 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.
