Windows 1.0 turns 34 years old today

Actually, the first for-real version of Windows was called 1.01, but there’s a complicated story around it. Microsoft’s had problems with version numbering for a long time.

 

My first experiments with Windows were on Windows 286. What about you?

well windows 3.11 long before internet. i learned how

to secure it by tweaking the .ini files especially in schools.

this was before they even had it people around.

 

i was an early pc adopter techie but i stopped because

people would ask me to help them for hours resolving

pc and windows problems with no pay.

 

i was in luck because one of my friends was bragging

how good he was so he took over my business. every

time we go together he would complain on the same

thing i now avoided.

 

still do techie jobs for relatives and people that pay for

it.
