NT products

You mean NT itself? There we go, everytime treating Server and Workstation as one. Also specials like Terminal Server Edition and Enterprise Edition not mentioned, they mainly start at NT4.

NT 3.1 - 1993 - first attempt, user Win 3.1 GUI
NT 3.5 - 1994 - strong internal improvements, more stable, better upgrade from 3.1
After this the team split: 'loosers' (2nd choice) to go to NT4, 'winners' to NT5 team which later became W2K
NT 4.0 - fall 1996. Internally almost NT 3.5 but with W95 GUI and more drivers
W2K - end 1999. Includes Active Directory, all the W98 hardware extensions and GUI.

Have fun,
