      Microsoft windows 1.0 is a 16-bit graphical operating environment and it was developed by Microsoft company. It was released on November 20th 1985. This was Microsoft first attempt to implement a multitasking graphical user interface based operating environment on the PC platform. Windows 1.0 was the first version of windows launched. When windows 2.0 was released/launched, windows 1.0 support was ended and this happened in December 31st, 2001. I really need this for school!!!

      Windows 1.0 wasn't an operating system, only a graphical interface for MS-DOS (like X11 for Linux nowadays) to be specific Anyway, keep my fingers crossed ;-)
