Here’s a little bit of history about Microsoft Windows. It was in 1983 when Microsoft announced the development of Windows. That time, it was only a GUI or a graphical user interface for MS-DOS operating system. It has changed into a modern operating system from mere GUI product having more than 2 lines of design.

Each of the line has its own default file system and codebase. The 2 product lines are 3.x and 4.x and they include: Windows 3.0, Windows 3.1x, Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Millennium. The Windows for Workgroups 3.11 included support for 32-bit disk access and networking and also Windows 95 that added additional 32-bit capabilities.

But in MS-DOS, several of its kernel and additional utilities like Disk Defragment stayed 16-bit. Windows 95 also applied a new object-oriented user interface where some of its components are still being used at present. I was still in college when the first Windows arrived and it was the first operating system we used in school though I was more interested in MS-DOS.

It was in 1993 when the Windows NT line began with Windows NT 3.1. In August 25, 2001, Windows XP was then released by Microsoft which they nicknamed Whistler. This was a year after Windows Millennium was released.
