I thought I would take a look at how WordPress has changed over the years. For no reason, except because sometimes I can be an incredibly boring man. Over 5,500 files and 13 major releases of WordPress later, I’ve put together a video and some images of the changes to the WordPress login screen and initial page once logged in (now the Dashboard, but used to be the Write screen).
I was only unable to get version 1.2 working, though I didn’t try very hard to be honest.
A brief summary of the different versions of WordPress are listed below.

I’ve also put together a couple of images showing the changes to the WordPress login screen and dashboard. Click on the images to enlarge, and depending on your browser you may have to click again to see it full screen:
To all geeks like me, enjoy!
