It's amazing how little the look has changed over the years.

You forgot Windows 3.1 which was sold for home use on some Packard Bell as well as many other computers.
I actually ran it on an AST ADVANTAGE ADVENTURE (as well as later on tested Windows 95 (Chicago) on it)
If I remember right these were it's specs:
AST Research AST Premium SE 4/33
Base Configuration: 33MHz 80486 CPU, 80387 FPU, 8MB RAM, 3.5-inch floppy drive, 10 EISA expansion slots, parallel and 2 serial ports, SCSI adapter, Ethernet and Token Ring adapters, 102-key keyboard, 300W power supply
Video: Super VGA
Size/Weight: 26h x 19d x 15w inches
Important Options: 330MB to 1GB hard drive, 14-inch AST Super VGA color or AST Mono VGA monochrome monitor
I had 24mb of memory in mine when I purchased it - one 8mb and one 16mb
Prior to 3.1 (yes there was 3.0) but before it was more business oriented.
And yes I did upgrade the processor with an Overdrive that made it a whopping 933 mhz.

Man, blast from the past. A few months back I threw out that big box my AST computer came in.
