A Walk through Windows History

I freely admit, I’m a bit of a history nut. And I also admit I use Windows, and have used Windows for pretty much forever. I should also mention that I’ve personally owned just about every version of Windows to ever exist, at one time or another.

Finally, I should mention that I’m a bit of a pack rat – that is, I don’t get rid of old things. Sometimes this is annoying – other times, it can be very useful (or at least entertaining).

This is one of those times.

Thanks to the wonder of Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, I was able to resurrect both Windows 3.11 (for Workgroups) and Windows NT Workstation 4.0 – both of which are versions of Windows I haven’t personally seen in many, many years.

It may seem rather boring to some, but to me, it’s like a stroll down memory lane. Feel free to browse through these pictures I took (gotta love the new gallery feature of WordPress) and share your own memories of Windows long past!
