    Windows 8
    Windows 7
    Windows Vista

    Win 8 64-bit


    Windows 8
    Windows 7
    Windows Vista
    Windows 2000
    Windows XP
    Windows 98 SE
    Windows 95 Plus

    As for "how you might view them today". Well, although 95/98 are at the bottom of the list, I undoubtedly had the most fun with these OS's, as this era of computing was probably the most fun and exiting period. Ah, memories.

    Dos - I had to put this one at the top because I remembered I was using dos 4 or 5 (not sure which one) and then came dos 6.11 and I was so excited when I got it, I have never been that excited about an OS ever since just made me laugh this morning thinking about it
    Windows 8
    Windows 7
    Windows Vista
    Windows ME
    Windows XP
    Windows 98 SE
    Windows 95 Plus

    Until Windows ME I was always jumping to DOS less so for the rest of them because most of the programs I had could only run on DOS , Anyone remember DOOM lol

    I could have included apple OSes but decided not to. I've used some newer and older apple computers, but never paid attention to which OS version I was using. Oldest computer I touched was in my geometry teacher's classroom. She had lines of old apple computers with this really cool tank game I can't recall the name to. All I know is you had to aim and lobby a projectile at a castle or something. Kept me from my studies
    That was all those things were good for in today's terms. No clue what they did when they first arrived on the scene.

    Also remember our first computer at home was apple. Only thing it was good for were the preinstalled games and the screen saver. yep. It had mickey mouse, goofy and what-not painting a mess of the screen and falling off a window washer. Then it died and we went to Windows (XP). I was a kid, so my parents must have used it for something probably a little more profound.
