Well, I have faint memories of using Windows 3.1 as a little kid. I remember getting a brand new PC (with Windows 95). I remember my older brother getting Windows 98 and me being dead jealous (still had 95). I eventually got 98 and then I moved onto ME (the horror). I upgraded to XP about one or two years after it came out and I used Vista for about a month, but didn't like it so I switched back.

In summary:
  • Windows 3.1
    Windows 95
    Windows 98
    Windows ME
    Windows XP
    Windows Vista

Windows 95 B
Windows 98 SE (Playing) and Windows NT 4 (Working)
Windows XP
Windows 2000 (2nd PC)
Windows Me (Laptop, designed for Win95...)

For Fun and "Half-Serious":
Windows Neptune (a friend of mine uses it as daily-OS)
Longhorn 4074 "2008" with some extensions from 5048 (2nd PC)
Whistler 24xx (i think was the last Whistler Beta before it was changed to "XP")
Windows Server 2003
Windows 95 C, NT 4 TS, NT 3.51, NT 5 1946 (all in VPC only)
Windows Vista (in VPC only)

That can't be true, since Memphis didn't even exist in 1994! It wasn't even planned until September 1995! And he was also referring to Windows 98 Second Edition, which didn't even go into beta testing until later in 1998 after the first version of Windows 98 was released, so I'm sure it was just a typo.

Okay, it was a typo (i think).
I see many typo's and not complete typed words here, but with typo's i can manage but those other forum types of typing, its annoying.
