Happy birthday Windows! Microsoft windows is 20 years old!
Yep, windows is already 20 years old. 20 awful years of crashing and making our lives miserable.. (Hmm things certainly improved a lot since XP). I remember back in 95 when I used to pray for 2 hours, invoking all the known gods of humanity before installing a device driver / Service pack on NT 4.0. The Dreaded BSOD (Blue screen of death) was a lot more common back then.
The following article tells us about 20 things we aren't supposed to know about Windows 1.0
"An early PR photo for Windows 1.0 shows Bill Gates sprawled on a desk leaning on a computer monitor. Behind him are several other computers, including an IBM PC and a Mac"
Isn't that just horrible? I think I'm going to have nightmares for the next month.
