From Windows 1 to Windows 7 in under a day

From Windows 1 to Windows 7 in under a day Uncategorized Some one thought it would be a good idea to try to install every version of Windows from 1.0 to Win7. It was interesting to see that what settings and programs survived the updates.

This was a little nuts, but the result is fascinating.

For example, a couple programs installed in Dos 5.0 still worked in Windows 7. The settings created in Windows 2 survived every upgrade until Win2k. The level of backwards compatibility MS supports is impressive.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
