Collecting all Windows Operating Systems

Last Modified: 2015-04-05
Currently I am trying to collect all of Microsoft's Windows Operating Systems from beta to final release. My collection would require a latest beta version of each OS and the latest final release of each OS (For example, the latest Windows Chicago which is the beta version of W95, and then W95c which is, as far as I'm aware, the latest version of Windows 95).

After research I have found a very decent site that has most of the releases here: https://winworldpc.com/library/ However I'm trying to figure out what exactly is the latest versions for each beta and final releases, such as Windows Chicago: https://winworldpc.com/product/windows-95/chicago There are a lot of versions of such OS, but I am confused as to which one is the latest beta merely due to the filesizes. 4.00.501 is 353MB and 4.00.950 r-2 is 33MB?

So overall, my question is, can someone guide/explain to me what the latest beta OSes and latest release OSes are for all the Windows operating systems? Many thanks!
