I started with Windows with version 2.0. However in those days, I kept away from Windows as much as I could and stuck with DOS apps. I think that I did always like was that the C:\windows directory was very small and you could simply make a backup copy of C:\windows to C:\winback and in the event that an install went wrong, you could simply copy the files back and restart Windows and you were right back in business. Since the introduction to the registry and such with Win95...those days are LONG GONE. Oh well, Windows if far more stable and provides far more functionality these days....so the trade-off is worth it.
