How Many Windows?

If you are like me, almost all of my computers have come with Microsoft Windows.  Do you know how many Windows there have been?  Years ago I converted from Microsoft MS-DOS to Windows/286.  Windows/286 was a far cry from what we have today, but it was a start at desktop computing without having to type complicated or repetitive text commands.

Windows 7 is the new upcoming version, rumored to be released this Fall.  I now use Windows XP, Windows Vista, and keep another old computer with Windows 98 SE  for old programs and defragging floppy disks.  Look here for a history of Windows.

(Update:  Windows 7 was released in Nov ’09)
