    Nice post mate. It's amazing how it has progressed so much. I remember installing windows 3.1 using floppy discs.

        It is indeed the future, all of that in the past 20 years. Just think what the next 20 years have in-store. Just think how the hardware that runs windows will evolve.

          Probably this thread deserves a sticky. I do not mean I have written, but because Windows is living history, history of the PC.
          Thanks and regards.

            Re: The evolution of Windows from its beginnings to date

            There was a comparison towards the end of last year about steve jobs and dennis ritchie the creator of Unix. If it wasnt for unix, nothing like this would exist, but instead, jobs got all the attention due to his apple company, even though without unix, he wouldnt have the knowledge to make all the products he did...

              Re: The evolution of Windows from its beginnings to date

              Some additions
              - 1987 windows 2.x - First released Icons, i386 support
              - windows 3.11 has not just "some adjustments", it's got native network support
              - Chicago was a working name for windows 95
              - 1996 Windows NT 4.0
              - 1996 Windows 95 OSR2 - native support of FAT32, USB and DMA
              - Windows Millenium for sure is the worst product Microsoft released, even worse than Vista
              - Vista and 7 have two improvements vs win xp - AHCI support and DirectX1x, especially EVR (for those who use PC as DVB receiver)

                In 1999 I was able to meet with a pc, but I've never seen predecessors.

                  Nice thread.
                  This shows how fast windows is evolving. Although sometimes to fast.
                  Win ME and Vista were huge flops.
                  But Microsoft learnt with that and released big improvments right away. Win ME-»Win Xp / Win Vista-»Win7.
                  Hope Win8 doesnt born another flop.

                      Hopefully Win8 is not going to be such a fail, as Windows Vista was...

                        The interface is what characterizes the new reality of Windows 8, bringing before the eyes of the users something new and completely different from the past. The "live tile" is the new channel of access to software and applications, while a simple switch allows you to pass on the traditional desktop application.
                        Windows 8 is able to accommodate all types of interaction: use of fingers or mouse.
                        I think it is the S.O. the near future.

                          yep

                          Still remembering those ms-dos days with all the commands (think it was 3.1) ; didn't even had a hard disk then ; first one only had 2 floppies 5 1/4 inch. Man I did a lot of changing floppies (some programs like dbase had about 20 of them)

                          'Windows' wasn't there yet - I think - but my Amstrad pc 1512 already had some kind of windows -> was very great that time!

                          Not even 40 years, and getting really old :o
