As you all know, many versions and editions of Windows were developed and released over time. After a while it could be useful to have a list by hand that can give you a quick overview of those versions and editions. Below you find a table that lists every main Windows version. With “main” I don’t mean the most important versions; what I do mean, is I only list the distinct versions at “the highest versioning level”, but no sub-versions (versions that fall under the main version).
