The following list contains an index of the major build and version numbers for a few Microsoft products. This list is primarily for the Office Server System (OSS) developer so it doesn't cover all Microsoft products. It's a work in progress... if you would like to contribute, please post to the comments of this article and include a citation where the version number can be validated.
Why create a list like this? Because I have needed it numerous times in the past and frankly I'm sick of having wade through my stack of books or the incredibly hard-to-find-things Microsoft knowledge base. Maybe it will help someone else, but it will now be easy for me to find from anywhere.

* SRP = Security Rollup Package
** - SharePoint v3's architecture is such that MOSS is treated more or less like a feature pack, thus the underlying versions are the same between WSS v3 & MOSS 2007
[Updated 12/15/2005] Added WSS & SPS post-SP2 rollup updates.
[Updated 5/22/2006] Added SQL 2005 SP1 & post SP1 hotfix KB918222
[Updated 5/26/2006] Fixed CMS 2001 SRP1 & SRP2 & SP2 (there was no SP2 for CMS 2001, rather two SRP's for SP1). Thanks to Stefan for pointing this out.
[Updated 12/13/2008] Added all the major updates and security rollups for SharePoint v3.
