microsoft windows 1 Happy Anniversary to Microsoft Windows

Well it’s been a long rollercoaster of a ride for Microsoft Windows who turned 25 yesterday. November 10, 1983 was the day that CEO Bill Gates unveiled the Windows operating system at New York’s Helmsley Palace Hotel to IBM associates. Although the OS didn’t ship for another two years, Gates was definitely correct in his prediction that Windows would rule IBM and personal computers.

You gotta love the GUI, which was bleeding edge for the day as well as the 5 1/2 inch floppies that the OS shipped on. Oh, those were the days.

If you are like me, you’re waiting anxiously for the arrival of Windows 7, coming sometime in 2009.
