This can be nostalgic to many geeks who have been using Microsoft’s Windows operating system for a long time now. Andrew Tait must be appreciated for taking pain to install every version of Windows OS from 1.0 to 7 inside a VMWare instance, and thereby giving us an overview of how Windows has changed over the years. And all that in just 9 minutes!

For someone who started off with Windows 95, getting to see DOS 5.0 and Windows 1.0 was a treat. The whole procedure took 3 days for Andrew to complete. It is interesting to see how DOS versions of Doom 2 and Monkey Island still works on Windows 7 after all these years!


This fascinating experiment shows how much effort Microsoft puts into ensuring legacy compatibility. It’s not all about BSOD you see!
