    Happy 31st Birthday Windows 1.0 -- Introduced in 1983


    Today marks the 31st birthday of Windows 1.0. On November 10, 1983, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates unveiled Windows 1.0 to the world. This operating system required only two floppy disks and 192KB of RAM in order to function. Windows 1.0 would ship to consumers for $99 only two years later after its unveiling.

    Windows 1.0 wanted to change the way we used computers, during a time when most computers were text based. Windows 1.0 had a graphical user interface, which was a radical shift from the norm, and was met with a lot of hesitation from users and critics (sound familiar?).

    Windows 1.0 came with several programs which we still use to this day -- including Calculator, Calendar, Clipboard Viewer, Clock, Notepad, Paint, Reversi, Cardfile, Terminal, and Write. Windows 1.0 had an amazing interface at the time, having all windows tiled, rather than overlapping. This meant only dialog boxes could appear over other windows.

    My first computer was a Atari 800XL. Dual 5 1/4" disk drives and a printer that used tiny ink pens for the ink supply.

    Not many people would have seen that video back then. This is the first time I've seen it.

    Wouldn't it be cool to take a modern gaming machine back to then and see their reactions.
