Hi,
I am jumping around to different vendor site and would like to know if there is a master list of all end of life operating systems in a spreadsheet.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not aware of a "master list" and I don't know of any incentive to keep one, but Wikipedia has information on the various Microsoft operating systems.  It may have information on a few flavors of *NIX.  There are probably mainframe OSes that have either never died or never left the company they were created for.

This is probably the closest you will get to seeing all operating systems. I don't think their is a list of JUST End of Life.

That looks like a good start for a discontinued list, it looks like its missing quite a bit though.
