ROFL.  I don't think I was being dishonest, certainly not intentionally.
I did recently purchase a small notebook with "Windows 7" installed.  I
may have had my head infected by the Marketroid virus as a result.  :-D

So, yes Virginia, there was one "further" release with the (DOS-based?)
Windows kernel, named WinME.  Now, to be real pedantic, there was Windows
3.1 before Windows95, and before that, Windows 3.0, 2.1, 2.0, 1.0, and
"Interface Manager".

I'm feeling kinda sick now ... so, no more ROFL, maybe ROLF instead?
