(2010-11-27) Microsoft Windows’ 25th Anniversary – Happy Anniversary!

Posted by Jorge on 2010-11-27


A good morning to you all. It’s quite early on Saturday as we speak. I couldn’t sleep anymore so I decided to do something useful. Get up, get coffee and blog. The advantage? No screaming kids running around!🙂 I already wanted to blog this post about a week earlier, but I did not because the blog server was not available for a day or two. After that I had forgotten about this until I remember it today, about a week later.

BETTER LATE THEN NEVER!!!

Exactly a week ago on November 20th 2010, Microsoft celebrated their 25th anniversary of Windows. Now think about it. What’s the latest and greatest being available at the moment? For the client that’s Windows 7 available in the 32 bit and 64 bit architecture and for the server that’s Windows Server 2008 R2 in the 64 bit architecture only.

On November 20th 1985 Microsoft released Windows 1.0 which was a 16 bit operating system. In that time, this was a state of the art operating system. Nowadays it would be nothing as most likely any wrist watch runs better stuff!🙂

On YouTube there are numerous videos of Steve Ballmer selling the product (Windows 1.0) on TV. It really cracked me up! Although Steve now is 25 years older, I think one thing has never changed about Steve, and that’s how energetic he can be about something.

Check the video out, you can see it here.

Happy Anniversary!

Cheers,
Jorge
