Windows "Future versions of Windows are going to bear little resemblance to what we've heard so far officially - and unofficially - from Microsoft and the individuals who love to leak tidbits about the company. In fact, according to one of my reliable tipsters, the new and reorganized Windows organization, led by Senior Vice President Steven Sinofsky, is trying to wean folks completely off the Windows code names they have been using for the next couple of releases of Windows. Welcome to the brave new world of 'Windows 7' (a boringly named complement to 'Office 14', the successor to Office 2007)." More here.

I think you mean:

DOS-based line:
1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 95 -> 98 -> ME -> XP -> Vista -> 7

(Technically, XP is not a DOS-based OS, but it is the continuation of the DOS-line, as the upgrade path is from Win9x to XP).

NT-based line:
3.1 -> 4 -> 2000 -> XP -> Vista -> 7

And the server line:
3.1 -> 4 -> 2000 -> 2003 -> 7
