    My favorite version is Windows 7, the most stable windows so far. And the reason Windows ME is not in this is because it was so bad its not even worth mentionning.

      It's right next to Windows 2000. ME was short for Millennium Edition.

    Incorrect windows 8.1 screenshot. It has windows button but does not have start menu. It only allows easier to find start menu than 8. Please change ASAP for future generations

      It looks like the owner installed something like Classic Shell to get the start menu back. Nice app, but you are right in that it is not how the OS really looked or worked.
