Upgrading from Windows 1.0 to Windows 7

Really impressive to see that it actually is possible to upgrade all the way from Windows 1.0 (DOS 5.0) to Windows 7 and keep some of the applications and user settings. The only OS I missed was Windows ME (not that any sane person used that OS but anyway), Andy explains that Windows ME did not provide an upgrade path to Windows 2000 and that is why he left it out. Read more details on his blog.

It would be fun so see someone do the same with for example Ubuntu or Redhat, upgrade from the earliest version to a current version.

  1. Remarkable! Has this been done before? It’s insane how you can upgrade ‘all the way’ and even retain some settings / applications.
