Windows 8.1 Professional 64-Bit

Windows 3.1
Windows 95
Windows 98
Windows 98 SE
Windows NT 3.51
Windows NT 4.0
Windows 2000 (At the Office and at home - incredibly stable till it died horribly because of bad RAM)
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 7 x64 (from Jan 2010 to date - this holds the record for longest lived single install - it even survived a full system change - CPU, moBo, RAM, GPU all at once - without requiring a re-install, and is still rock solid despite everything I have thrown at it.)

C'mon group!

I can't be the only one who tried Microsoft Bob!

Well I'm old enough just have not run across MS Bob.

After reading up on MS Bob at Wikipedia I think it would be perfect for adding to Windows 8 release.
They could have a billiards room for Bob to play 8 Ball.

Was that 98 or WinME or both ?

I've used both and Vista plus XP and now Windows 7 Ultimate
I did NOT use Windows 98 Millenium Edition. I used 98 SE and liked it, compared to 95 and ME.
