A History of Microsoft Windows

July 29th 2015

Windows 10, reportedly the last ever version of Microsoft’s hugely popular operating system, was released today, the 29th of July.     

Released in 1985 to muted acclaim, the first version of Windows was essentially MS DOS with some applications sporting an interface.  Twenty years ago, Windows 95 introduced the now iconic Start button.  This makes a welcome return in Windows 10, having been controversially removed in Windows 8.
