Though early Windows were extensions of DOS in a similar way that the
X Window System extended Unix, it doesn't change the fact that Windows
existed before 3.1.

I do have to agree with Jerry that very few people are familiar with
versions 1 and 2, so I understand why he started there.

Add me to the list of people who bought and tried Windows 1.0, 2.0,
and 3.0, but like many others it didn't become my primary interface
until 3.1. Windows for Workgroups 3.11 was a nice improvement too,
for only being 3.1 to 3.11 in the numbering scheme.
