If yer gonna put Windows 1.0 on there, you might as well put the other Windows OS builds on there too, lol!

Whatever...

I'm still trying to figure out how 56 is less popular than 10.
(Do the math if you don't know what I mean.)

Do you use Windows 3.1?

I did up until about 3 months ago. It was on my old 80386 until it crashed, and while I was restoring everything, I realized I had lost the disks.

Millenium is the next revision of 98 and 95, based on DOS, where as Windows 2000 and XP are based on the NT kernel. NT is Microsoft's attempt at a UNIX style operating system. The problem is Microsoft never got either one right, that's why they constantly have to write patches for each one. XP consists of almost only patches, that's why there is over 65 million lines of code. Longhorn should be even longer. They should just scrap all of it and start over!

I've got 98 and XP on my main comp, 98 on my laptop, 95 on an old 486 (slow as hell, I'm gonna go back to DOS on that one!), an IBM PS/2 with Dos 3.3, and an ancient (1990) Sharp laptop with no HD with Dos 3.3 and Windows 1.0, I kid you not. Worthless, pointless OS, but darn it I've got it!
