Just more than two decades ago, a young man from Washington had some things to say at New York’s Helmsley Palace Hotel. He claimed that, powered by a unique graphical interface, his new OS, (coincidentally named Windows!) would be running 90% of IBM systems from the next year.
Of course nobody believed him then. But that person had it in him to make others believe what he wished. The product is Windows operating system, that now runs in 90% of the computers worldwide. The person is, with no surprises, Mr. Microsoft, Bill Gates.
Today is the 25th anniversary of the announcement of Windows 1.0. A simple tribute from us remembering that event which gave us a new vision of operating systems and much more.
p.s. -> We have kept aside all the antipathies for Microsoft today. Please bear with us, geez.
