Upgrading Through Every Version of Windows

windows 1.01

Here is an interesting video showing that it is possible to upgrade through every major version of windows. The author started by installing MSDOS 5.00 and windows 1.01 on a virtual machine and proceeded to repeatedly upgrade until he reached windows 7.

It is unclear if the virtual hardware was upgraded during the process. I would be surprised if he got windows 1.01 running on newer hardware, or windows 7 running on old hardware.
