Microsoft updates its Windows operating system every few years—although the big releases only come once or twice a decade. The latest big release was Windows 95 (back in 1995), which was a total rewrite of the previous 3.X version of Windows. Windows 98 (which followed in 1998) was a less-significant upgrade, and Windows 98 Second Edition (in 1999) was really no more than a minor bug fix. Windows Me (released in 2000) added a few bells and whistles, but was still basically the same operating system released back in 1995.
