Post Site for old operating systems

I found this site yesterday and I looked at it a bit and its pretty cool. You can see screenshots of older versions of the Mac Operating System and Windows including like Windows 1.0 and all that, you can see the boot screens right up to Long Horn {before they named it Vista}.

Edit: Aah. The memories. I remember using this at my grandmothers house when she had Windows 95 and a Packard Bell computer:

Edit 2: Erm... Microsoft Bob?

It's interesting to view the boot screens & other screens to see how Windows has changed over time.

Microsoft Bob screenshots are funny. Lol. Look at the type of graphics they had back then. Not as good as Photoshop today, eh? If you wanna see the horrible graphics, use my Bob link or this direct one: http://www.guidebookgallery.org/guis/bob/screenshots
