Origins of Windows

November 5th, 2008

Have you ever wondered how old Microsoft Windows is? Do you know when the first copies of this program were sold? Actually Microsoft Windows have not been around for that long. It has been less than 20 years. Those of you my readers who are over the age of 20 probably remember the times where Windows where not around yet. Let me here give you a brief history of what versions were used by users in what years:

1990-1994: Windows 3.1
1995-1997: Windows 95
1998-1999: Windows 98
2000: Windows ME
2001-2006: Windows XP
2007-2008: Windows Vista

And you, my reader, what version of Windows are you currently using? From my observation I know that many people still use Windows XP, but Windows Vista is gaining popularity quite fast.
