    Um, that looks like Windows 3.0 to me.

    Definitely 3.x. Windows 1.0 came on 4x 5.25" 360K floppies plus an optional OEM specific disk and was never shipped on 3.5" AFAIK. If it did, it would only take 2x 720K. The logo is all wrong for 1.x as well.

    His MS-DOS 5.0 listing has the same logo. Win 1.x was released in 1985. MS-DOS 5.0 not until 1991. Seems obvious to me.
