    Just wondering if it is possible, or has anyone tried to upgrade from Windows 3.1 or 3.0 to Windows 10 via Windows 95 -> Windows 98 -> Windows 98SE -> Windows Me -> Windows XP -> Windows Vista -> Windows 7 -> 8, 8.1, and finally 10?

    Installing Windows 1.0 to 10 (Time Lapse) on a Virtual Machine:
    (about 3 minutes)

    Upgrading from DOS and Windows 1.0 to Windows 10 - real time:
    (almost 11 hours)

    and the answer is on the first movie :)

    Ha that was a blast form the past, yeah there used to be dos, forgot about that. I can just remember using it on the first PC I owned, installing it with a big stack of floppy disks. Never saw win1 or win2. Went from dos to win3. Other versions I never saw, winME, vista, win8.

    There was a time when Windows was called "A designer straight-jacket for DOS". :D

    For all of us who feel only the deepest love and affection for the way computers have enhanced our lives, read on. At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated, "If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon."

    In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued a press release stating: If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:

    1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day.

    2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.

    3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.

    4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.

    5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would run on only five percent of the roads.

    6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by a single "This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation" warning light.

    7. The airbag system would ask "Are you sure?" before deploying.

    8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

    9. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

    10. You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the engine off."
