Datebook: November 20 - Windows 1.0 Debuts 27 Years Ago

Nov 20, 2012

It's hard to imagine what we'd all be doing right now if Microsoft had never developed Windows (using Macs?). On this day in 1985, graphical interface Windows 1.0 launched for computers with at least 256 kB of memory. Features included a calendar, notepad, paint... and the game Reversi!

It’s Tuesday, November 20
