1. Windows 1.0
2. Windows 2.0
3. Windows 2.1x
4. Windows 3.0
5. Windows 3.1
6. Windows NT 3.5
7. Windows NT 3.51
8. Windows 95
9. Windows NT 4
10. Windows 98
11. Windows ME
12. Windows 2000

15. Windows 7


No. I already covered this. You'll also notice I didn't neglect to enter 3.11 into my listing :P

Windows for workgroups was not an NT OS.
they have two separate lines.

windows 1,2,3.0,3.1,3.11,95 (4.0),98(4.1.1998), 98SE (4.1.2222) and ME (4.90.3000) are based off the same codebase.

Windows NT 3.1, 3.5,3.51, 4.0, 5 (windows 2000) 5.1 (windows XP) and 6.0 (Windows Vista) are based off the NT codebase.

Version numbers don't transcend multiple codebases.

so in general what we have are 7 versions,of windows NT, before windows 7. however, since windows Vista is 6.0 windows 7 can easily be called version 7. (although in actuality I believe it's version number is 6.1)



I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

You're right I saw my Windows version listed somewhere on my computer as 6.1
Back on good old fashioned Air cooling again.
