    windows 1.0 cost $99?

    when pc games cost around $10. thats a rip off.


    who had $99 in 1983??


    I know my parents did not have $99 cause I was born in 82 and took all their money.


    and then they bought me a tandy computer...

    Well done MS (windows). I started with a 80386 4mb ram and, a nice isa video card 512kb.
    I was given a copy of Windows 2 and Dos 3.2. I had a 200mb HDD and I thought I was KING.

    My first Windows PC was a work computer running 3.1. The first PC I bought for myself came with Windows 95.

    Happy Birthday Windows! Love it or hate it , Windows brought computing to the masses and I for one greatly appreciate that.

    My first foray into computers was in 83 when I bought a Vic 20, thinking my kids would enjoy using it and inputting their own games ( they never did ).
    Then in 89 an opportunity to purchase ($3,500) a 80286 through the company I worked for then brought me into computers, Dos 4, then 3.1, 95, 98, XP, (skipped Me and Vista) 7, 8, 8.1 and now playing with 10.... Happy days....

    My first computer was in 1982 I bought ZX Spectrum with 48 memory. My first pc was in 1990 with a 286 running at 12th and had MS-DO on it.

    I had as much fun on a computer back then as I do today.

    I've had pretty much all versions of Windows including NO and 2000 but not 3.11. So 3.1, 95, 98, Me, NO, 2000, X, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1.

    3.11 was just 3.1 with networking ,I think that was the big difference

    No, there was Windows 3.11 and Windows 3.11 For Workgroups. 3.11 for Workgroups had networking, 3.11 was just an update to 3.1

    And, in true Microsoft fashion, 3.11 for Workgroups was almost a completely different version of Windows, in that it had a 32 bit file I/O layer (vxd's) that was the basis for Windows 95. Ironically, this seemingly minor update was a huge change in functionality.
