Watch Windows upgrade from 1.0 to Windows 8 Pro

Ever wanted to spend an hour of your life watching Windows upgrade from the very first release right through to the most recent? Well now you can, thanks to YouTuber ZlotyObin, who has compiled a video of his upgrade path from Windows 1.0 to Windows 8 Pro, firing up a copy of the classic game Doom II occasionally as he successfully boots into his freshly upgraded copy of Windows for the first time.

It's interesting to note that he manages to upgrade from Windows 1.01 through 2.03, 3.0a, 3.1 and 95 in the first five minutes or so of the video, while installing Windows Vista takes longer than all of these combined. It's also a great way to see how the installation process for Windows has changed through the ages, from 1985 to 2012.
