Microsoft Windows Server – WinNT Server

Was going through some old stuff today and found something interesting!! Guess what? It is a CD installer of Microsoft Windows NT! Really brings back memory when I was learning to manage Microsoft Windows NT Server… I always having headache whenever there are a new release of Service Pack. 
One of my greatest challenge during that time is how to perform restoration of it using emergency disaster recovery disk (Veritas) to restore the PDC where we keep a set of diskettes for each and every servers!! Can imagine how much diskettes we kept that time (x_x)

So.. Went to done some research online on History of Microsoft Windows NT Server and sure got lots of information… A quick summary (timeline) of it is shown below:
