Ok, I am starting a collection of Windows & DOS OS, "Full Versions"

If any of you have these, I would be willing to buy them.

Here is a list of what I still need:

1981 MS DOS 1.0
1982 MS DOS 1.25
1983 MS DOS 2.0
1983 Microsoft Windows
1983 MS DOS 2.11

1984 MS DOS 3.1
1985 Microsoft Windows 1.0
1987 MS DOS 3.3
1987 Microsoft Windows 2.0
1987 Microsoft Windows 386
1988 MS DOS 4.0
1988 Microsoft Windows 286
1989 MS DOS 4.01

MS-DOS versions prior to 5.0 were never sold as "full retail", they were only available as "OEM" with the purchase of a computer.

This didn't exist. The first version was "1.0".

5.0a wasn't a separate product, it was a patch.

"MS DOS 7.x" were not separate products, they were the underlying DOSes in Windows 95-98.

Obviously, you just found a list of DOS/Windows versions online somewhere, and copied and pasted it.

As for the rest, eBay is your friend. I just got OS/2 2.0, OS/2 2.1, PC-DOS 6 and PC-DOS 7 shrink-wrapped from there, for less than $20 each. (I already have my Microsoft collection, I am now building the IBM collection.)

If you want a real collectors item, try to find an OS/2 for PowerPC disc. Good luck with that.
