Microsoft Windows Through the Years: A Walk down the Memory Lane

The first concept of a Windows operating system came about in 1983, and the first functional Windows was launched in 1985.

It’s been 32 years now, and Windows has gone through a drastic transformation over the years. From a 16-bit graphic interface on top of MS-DOS to a high-end heavy interface that’s capable of running multiple tasks at a time.

What you are using today is one of the most advanced operating systems in the world.

Here’s a look at Microsoft Windows’ evolution over the years.
