I went from a Commodore 64 to Windows 2.0. Makes me wish I would`ve gone to Unix instead.

I noticed alot of the Mac screens are in higher quality, and have nice images in the background (95, for example, was just a plain color..)

Anyway, thanks for bringing another Windows vs Mac war to IAB!

"didnt they miss out windows ME?"

Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows NT etc. all had the basic interface of Windows 98, therefore it would be redundant to post shots of them. The only thing different about them is how they worked.

I`m still operating with a Win3.x. Has there been an update? Didn`t see that coming. Any suggestions?

"Windows 3.1 was the first computer my family ever had. Boy that brings back memories."

Same here, like the time I completely messed up Windows 3.1 by deleting some files I shouldn`t have and we had to get a new computer.

"Commodore, Amiga, Tandy, et cetera."

Correct me if I`m wrong, but I assumed these computers ran on command-line/text only interfaces, and not GUIs. That`s probably why they`re not listed, because these never ran on "desktops."

"It seems to me that the Mac OS was actually heavily ripped of by windows in the early days."

Apple actually filed a law suit against Microsoft about that, although they didn`t win because the judge had no clue what they were talking about.

Vista is just an OSX knockoff. I actually saw a video... Someone was describing the new features in Vista, and all of those features were being shown with OSX. Pretty funny, actually.

Those first Mac screenshots bring back so many memories! My dad brought home an Apple LC running Mac System 6 in December of 1989, when I was 4. The first software we bought was KidPix. Damn, those were good times.

I think the evolution of the PC and the Mac should have been side-by-side, not all merged into one list. It`s hard to compare this way.

I think you will find that Britain made the first electronic computer, but that is still clasified information. It was the Colossus, and was made to crack the enigma codes during WW2.

Or the Atanasoff-Berry Computer.

The first electronic computer, but there were also other non-electronic computers invented throught history. Check out this link on Heron, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hero_of_Ale... he built complex machines involving weights and rotating dowels with pegs in which ropes could be placed to operate various things.

A few computers missing from that list..

Commodore, Amiga, Tandy, et cetera.

And sure the Eniac was not a desktop computer by any means, but they could at least mentioned it.

A lot of those screenshots of Windows are low-res when they could have been high-res like the equivolent mac systems. Windows 95 and 98 didn`t look much differant from modern Windows. 95 was really the turning point.
I remember I had windows 3.1 back in 92...

My grandma used to have a classic 386 computer and a old mac. But yet another reason that mac is better than windows.
