My family`s first windows based computer ran `95. I gotta say, things really haven`t changed all that much since then.

I started with CP/M before I went to DOS. I used DOS 2.1 for quite while, then 3.0 (fair), 3.1 (good), 3.2 (sucked), and 3.3 (GREAT!). I used 3.3 for a long time. Then DOS 4, 5, and 6 before going straight to Win 3.1 (unless you count Aldus Pagemaker which came with a Win 1.0 runtime module).

Except for the servers, I've had, or at least used, every version of Win since then except (I`m proud say) ME and Vista.

Back in the 80`s there were a number of GUIs that were competing with Windows but lost out in the end. I had GEM (Graphics Environment Manager) from Digital Research, the original writers of CP/M and CP/M 86 which Bill Gates totally ripped off to create DOS. I also used Geoworks which wasn`t too bad, and Framework, which sucked. They weren`t so much operating environments as simply suites of applications that all worked together -- more or less. There was also Lotus Symphony, but I never used that.

DOS 3.3 and Win 2K were by far the best.
