1985


What were you doing on this date, November 20, in 1985 when Microsoft released Windows 1.0? This version was replaced two years later by Windows 2.0, but continued to be supported by Microsoft until December 2001.

Windows 1.0 was only available on floppy disks, and was bootable. The user had to have DOS 3.1 to install it.
