Saw this @ 7Forums, I found it to be fascinating.

Man upgrades Windows 1.0 to Windows 7 [video] | WinRumors

One man has captured every install of Windows from 1.0 through to 7 and shared it with the world via YouTube.

The video details install processes and the UI for each version of Windows over the past 25 years and most importantly the upgrade process. The only exception is Windows ME, missing as you can only upgrade to ME or 2000 and not both. The video creator, Andrew Tait, used VMWare to install each version and started by installing MS-DOS 5.0 to prepare for the Windows 1.0 installation. Monkey Island and Doom 2 are both installed to test upgrade compatibility throughout the years.
