All? How far back? You’re probably starting at 3.1...

Sorry for the late response..
Windows 95 was my first heavy use os.
Read an enthusiastic article on launch of Windows 95 :-) https://www.itprotoday.com/windows-server/windows-95-preview#menu
Notice: "Microsoft's plan is for Windows 95 to run at least as well on a 4 megabyte 386DX as Windows 3.x does."
That's 4 MB RAM..  :) ;) ;D

Windows 95 ran well on 4mb RAM? I don't remember either way, but that's impressive. So much resource bloat nowadays.

The enthusiasm in that article is legit. '95 might still be the biggest paradigm shift in Windows computing thus far, many of the UI elements/enhancements still used today were introduced in that version.

Notice it says: "Microsoft's plan is for Windows 95 to..". Not sure that was the end case.

True. Most of our Windows experience today was born in Windows 95.
