Microsoft Windows is 30 years old: from one to ten windows!

When Windows 1.0 came out nearly thirty years ago, few experts thought the operating system was going to shape the future of many of our careers.

Mac OS’s operating system could easily have hit the Windows operating system, which was more like a shell than Microsoft’s DOS operating system. Over the past thirty years, Windows has experienced many successes and failures, as we see today from version 1 to version 10. In this article, we will have a brief look at the evolution of this operating system.

According to Mediasoft; Nearly thirty years ago, on November 2, 1985, Microsoft finally decided to release the first version of the Windows operating system. The Windows operating system was released long before Mac easily ruled the world of operating systems with its graphical operating system. Users with experience working with DOS are well aware that the most powerful graphics software written for that era was NC. A program that tried to simplify users’ access to files and folders with the graphics of the time and of course with mouse support. But with the advent of Windows, Microsoft has taken a new path. Perhaps the founder of Microsoft never predicted at the time of the release of the first version of the Windows operating system that Windows would achieve this level of luck and fame. A reputation that still stands with the past few decades.

1985 Windows 1.0

By modern standards, the first version of Windows had many shortcomings. A one-and-a-half-year hiatuscaused this version to enter the market late, and as a result it could not keep up with the world of technology. To be more precise, Windows 1 could not be considered a complete operating system, but rather as an extension of the DOS operating system, and thus contained the shortcomings of DOS. Windows 1.0 failed to thrive legally and technologically in various areas. However, this operating system raised a flag that promised users a change in the way calculations and clear prospects. Thirty years later, it is now on millions of personal computers. The most important factor that makes Windows successful is its long-standing support for Microsoft. Microsoft officially nearly 16 years of Windows 1.

1987 Windows 2

Sorry, but the 80286 PC does not have the power to run windows / 386. This was the first version of Windows to protect the kernel in state, literally supporting multitasking. Microsoft also released a single task called Windows / 286 (Windows 2.1). Support for 16-bit computing and VGA graphics, along with the release of the first version of Input and Excel, were key features associated with Windows 386.

1990, Windows 3

Many DOS users may remember this version of Windows. The version we have been using for many years. If you remember, at that time we had to use more than ten diskettes to install this operating system. The diskettes that contained this operating system and many software companies were not willing to provide us with the original versions due to financial issues! The most prominent feature that this version provided to users is the ability to run old DOS programs simultaneously. Introducing a new user interface and programs related to file management and applications were the hallmarks of this Windows. Although this version used expanded and protected memory, the application programming interface (API) still used 16-bit mode. Compiling programs in a 16-bit environment would not allow this version to use the capabilities of the 80386 processor. But overall, Windows 3.0 was a complete, global success. So that Microsoft was able to sell nearly ten million copies of this Windows in two years.

 1993 Windows 3.11 Windows Workgroups

Windows 3.11, released on August 11, 1993, and originally called Snowball, was very similar to Windows 3, but was designed to use the network. Support for 32-bit disks and access to 32-bit files were some of the features of this version, but support for TCP / IP networks is one of the most prominent features of this version.

1994 Windows Anti 3.5

Windows Antenna Version 3.5 is the second version of the Antenna operating system. This version improved Microsoft’s position in the corporate business market by improving features such as security and sharing.

1995 Windows 95

Windows Windows, meaning what many of us are familiar with today, was released in August 1995. Support for 80386 processors with the ability to run programs under DOS, support for files with a length of 255 characters and support for point and distance, installation of hardware in Plug & Play mode, access to Windows and Unix networks, support for FAT 32, performance improvements and Reliability is one of the key features of this operating system. Microsoft introduced Internet Explorer with Windows 95. Windows 95 can be considered a new era in the emergence of

new programs.

1996 Windows Anti version 4

Microsoft decided to design two parallel versions of its operating system for several years in the early 1990s. The prescription that was given to businesses and the prescription that was given to consumers. Dave Colter, known as the father of Windows NT, called the DOS-based Windows family the operating system. Windows NT was the only serious choice for businesses, so version 4.0 of the operating system was highly regarded. This was the first version to use the Windows 95 shell with a start menu in the NT architecture. But the operating system was leaked to businesses with bad news. This operating system at that time required 32 MB (note 32 MB) of memory to run normal desktop applications.

1998 Windows 98

The operating system with a much better graphical interface than Windows 95 and with the ability to support i486 and higher processors had experienced significant improvements in hardware support and performance. Microsoft has finally turned its attention to the web world with Windows 98. Microsoft’s interest in the web was evident with the release of Active Desktop, Outlook Express, Frontpage Express, Microsoft Chat, and NetMeeting. Using Active Desktop, users had the ability to remotely access files just like their hard drive. Support for USB, IEEE 1394, support for DVD drives, multi-monitors, TV cards, AGP ports and more. Among the flagship features were Windows 98. It should be noted that the first version of this operating system was so unstable that by connecting a USB to it easily showed the blue screen of death to the user.

Windows Emi’s main focus was on multimedia content and home users. But this operating system was very unstable. Windows Movie Maker was first made available to users with this version. But in contrast, programs such as Internet Explorer and Media Player had improvements. Other features of Windows include support for advanced home networking capabilities, support for high-bandwidth Internet access, and the provision of online gaming tools.

Year 2000 Windows 2000

This operating system continued the successful path of Windows Ant. A 32-bit operating system that supported multitasking. This operating system was used in the form of desktop and server versions. With the release of Windows, Microsoft announced that support for advanced security features such as file encryption and dynamic library caches will promise greater security for

businesses.

2001 Windows XP

In 2001, Microsoft introduced the popular XP operating system. The popularity of this Windows was so great that even today, many users use this operating system. This Windows was provided to users both at home and professionally. Windows X has made good progress in many areas. Stability, advanced file management, multimedia capabilities and web publishing, improved Windows Melenium security issues, and re-engineering the development process are some of the hallmarks of Windows XP. With the release of the Service Pack 2, codenamed Springboard, many believed that a separate version of Windows had been released, but Microsoft said it was a free service pack designed to improve some of the desktop features.

2007 Windows Vista

Everything went well from the release of different versions of windows until the release of Vista. But with the release of Windows Vista, perhaps thousands of jokes were published about this operating system. So Vista created a big business hole in Microsoft Windows. But the operating system has made significant strides in some areas. Windows Vista’s flagship features include much more advanced security than XP, support for a more powerful firewall than Windows XP, prevention of malicious code execution, complete encryption of hard disk data, and User Account Control technology. But Windows Vista was never welcomed by computer makers. Perhaps Vista’s biggest weakness was the powerful hardware it needed to run. But overall, Vista has made significant progress in many areas compared to XP.

2009 Windows 7

Windows 7 can be considered the best operating system of the Windows family. This Windows was able to surpass Windows XP in terms of popularity. Windows 7 is essentially the second version of Windows Vista. But it fixed many of the problems with Vista drivers and incompatibilities. One of the key goals of Windows 7 was to support programs and drivers designed by developers for Windows Vista. The project, led by Steven Sinowski, was able to bring Windows to the top again. It’s been more than six years since Windows 7 was released, but Windows 7 still runs on millions of PCs.

Year 2012 Windows 8

Microsoft made a big surprise with the release of Windows 8. The user interface of this operating system changed for the first time and for the first time the start menu took its place on the page. But because Microsoft tried to design an operating system that would be compatible with touch computers, it largely distanced itself from users. This caused Windows 8 to suffer the same fate as Vista.

Windows Server 2012

Windows Server 2012 was released in four versions: Foundation, Essentials, Standard and Datacenter. Features that have been significantly improved in this version of Windows Server include virtualization, storage, networking, and automation. The operating system was also equipped with a number of features related to cloud and alarm services.

2013 Windows 8.1

On October 17, 2013, Microsoft released Windows 8.1. In Windows 8.1, Microsoft tried to fix a number of bugs in Windows 8. One of these was the return of the taskbar start menu in the desktop environment. But the function of this back button was no longer the same as the classic versions of the start menu, but rather a visible button to access the start screen. But in Windows 8.1 you had the ability to enter the desktop environment directly. In fact, Windows 8.1 can be considered a service pack for

Windows 8.

2015 Windows 10

After much criticism of the Windows 8 family, Microsoft took the start menu to Windows in the first step. The addition of applications such as Cortland and Microsoft HT with the return of the Start Menu, and the appropriate support for home users and owners of touch PCs, the integration of security features all made this Microsoft Windows once again a step in the direction of growth and development.
