The Birth of Windows

  • Windows was created by Microsoft, founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen, with Bill Gates as the driving force behind the company’s software endeavors.
  • The development of Windows began in the early 1980s as a project called “Interface Manager.” The goal was to create a graphical user interface (GUI) for personal computers.
  • Windows 1.0 was officially released on November 20, 1985. It marked the first version of the Windows operating system, which provided a GUI for MS-DOS, the dominant operating system at the time.

Windows Grows

  • Windows 2.0 was released in December 1987, introducing overlapping windows and improved graphics.
  • Then, Windows 3.0, launched in May 1990, was a significant milestone as it provided a more sophisticated GUI, introducing the iconic Program Manager and File Manager.
  • Windows 3.0’s success established Microsoft as a leader in the GUI market.

Modern Windows

  • Windows 8, introduced in October 2012, brought a more touch-oriented interface but faced mixed reviews.
