Clearly never used windows 286 or windows 386, or windows NT 3.1 let alone nt 3.5 or nt 3.51. may be they have never used or seem windows XP media centre edition(s). very few have seem NT4 embedded and almost no one has seen Windows XP art edition (very Mac like UI). Strange Windows 2003 is missing (???) did you know MS do real server version's like NTSE version 4 and 5. you need to get out more often

I don't know if it's just me, but as I recall Windows 95 had a large wealth of push backs and was eventually postponed so that it release a year late of it's namesake. I recall finding it funny that it was called "Windows 95" despite the fact that it had realisticly come out in 96. Althuogh I could be incorrect in this.

I really think that windows 2005 which was released this year will be effectively released in 2007

It was released on August 24, 1995 (I got 10 out of 12 questions right - got the wrong years for Windows 3.0 and 3.1)
