Evolution of MS Windows Versions (1985-2013)

Ever wonder how Windows has evolved in the past 28 years.  I think most people will remember Windows 95 as the 1st version they may have used.  My dad bought a laptop in 1991 that had Windows 3.0, that was my 1st experience with windows.  See chart below…this where the various version of windows fall into place.  I originally thought Windows 2000 & Windows ME were a separate version but they were similar (as early versions) of Windows XP.  Most people know that Vista didn’t work out too well.  I read that <10% of all PC’s in 2012-2013 were running Vista, the other 90% were all running Windows 7 or XP.  Windows 7 seemed to fix everything that was wrong with Vista, and I still use Win7 today.  I have used Windows 8 sparingly, I think the new 8.x version will be better.

Year Version   Name/Description    Rank
1985   1.0     Windows 1.0         *
1988   2.x     Windows 2.0         *
1990   3.x     Windows 3.0         **
1995   4.x     Windows 95,NT,98    ***
2001   5.x     Windows XP,2000,Me  ****
2006   6.x     Windows Vista       ***
2009   7.x     Windows 7           *****
2012   8.x     Windows 8/Metro     ***+

Screen Samples:

Windows 95 (1995)  First “Modern” windows version.
Windows NT (1995)  Business network version

Windows 2000  New version of “NT” worked well, but replaced by XP Pro shortly afterward.
Windows Me (2000) A personal version before XP, didn’t really take off…
Windows XP (2001)  One of my favorites, very stable.
windowsXP 

Windows Vista (2006)  Not that popular, older software wouldn’t run…

Windows 7 (2009)  I think this is the best version to-date, good interface, better security.

 Windows 8/Metro  Added tile page, major changes to the screens.
