The mystery of Microsoft's Windows version count has been solved. A day after announcing (in the Windows Vista blog) that the next release of Windows will be called Windows 7, Mike Nash (Microsoft Corporate VP, Windows Product Management) added a post laying out Microsoft's Windows version numbers since Windows 3.x.
Basically, they go like this:
Version 4: Windows 95
Version 4 point releases: Windows 98, 98SE, and ME (4.0.1998, 4.10.2222 and 4.90.3000, respectively).
Version 5: Windows 2000
Version 5 point releases: Windows XP (5.1)
Version 6: Windows Vista
I was surprised to realize that Windows XP (in which Microsoft unified the code bases for Windows 9x and NT/2000) was only a point release. But at least we now know how they got to Windows 7.
