He's actually kinda cheating.. i mean, he's got 3 different versions of BeOS, two Win98 installations, 3 different BSD variants... you could definately do better... but you'd have to be motivated, which I'm not. Maybe if there was money in it for me...

Are that many actual OS's out there? I mean, you would have to use different version to get that many right?

Default hmmmm

I may have a copy of Windows 1.0 lying around. I'll have to check and see if there is an extra 1 attached to the end of the version number or not

Still gotta go look around for Windows 3.11 for Workgroups (came on a CD!!!, which I purchased with a *gasp* 2x CD-ROM drive)

Dunno how I'm gonna get this on - still have Windows 2.0 and 3.0 on 5.25" floppies - oh well, there's always Virtual PC and VMware
