How many versions is that in the last 6? years? I started with 3.1, on to 95, then to ME. I will skip XP just as I skipped 98(not to mention the "professional" versions). I eagerly await the day when Mr. Gates and crew release the "final version" maybe aptly named "Windows FU"
In Windows history there has surely been room for updated versions, but, correct me if I am wrong, did'nt we just rush out and buy ME and 2000. If this trend continues, we can expect the next version in 6 months or so.


"FU","FU","FU","FU","FU","FU","FU","FU","FU","FU", here's my money, give me my Windows and FU too!!!!!

Years may differ slightly, being that these are from a UK source and these tend to be released in the US a little while before here.

1985 - Windows 1.01
1988 - Windows 2.03
1990 - Windows 3.0
1992 - Windows 3.1
1993 - NT 3.1
1994 - Windows 3.11
1994 - NT 3.51
1995 - Windows 95
1996 - NT 4.0
1998 - Windows 98
1999 - Windows 98SE
2000 - Windows 2000
2000 - Windows ME
2001 - Windows XP

As 'Always' said, that's not including versions...

Next MS OS due out is:

and ultimately:
Windows Between 2.30pm and 9pm Thursday 17th April 2003...

AlwaysLearning, you should learn from this. Winodws 95 was a significant improvement over the earlier Windows versions, which is why you probably have it. The verdict is not out on XP yet, but Windows2000 is a significant improvement over 95/98/ME--much more stable We are not talking about "bells and whistles" improvements, we're talking stability. If I were you, I'd consider upgrading to 2000 and then waiting another 5 years or so for the another significant improvement.
