What I mean by version number is not necessary mean the OS name or service packs. For example, Windows 7, doesn’t necessary mean it’s the 7th version of Windows coming from Microsoft. As we have discussed before on our opinion of Why Windows 7 is named Seven. Here is a list of versions of Windows, since Windows Operating System 1.0. The distinguish of versions rather than OS names are important for developers and the distinguish of Windows structure. The list can also be found on MSDN OSVERSIONINFO Structure
