Windows 2.0
Preliminary name Windows 1.1, 1.5
Official release date December 9, 1987

Windows 2.0 was a significant leap forward for the GUI, if only by its ability to let all types of windows overlap (not just dialogs). It was also designed to make better use of the more advanced hardware found in 286 and 386 computers, such as utilizing memory beyond the 640K barrier and the "virtual 8086 mode" found in the 386 processor.

No beta releases of Windows 2.0 are available. Have a rap song instead.
