Microsoft Windows

Microsoft Windows is an Operating System created by Microsoft Corporation. Originally released in 1985, Windows is currently the most popular Operating System in the market, and its latest stable release is Windows 10 Version 20H2.

Early Windows

Ever since its original release in 1985, Windows has had many changes over the years. The first versions were built on top of MS-DOS (monolithic kernel), and weren't really Operating Systems but rather Operating Environments, as you had to install them on a computer with DOS. Later versions (Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me) were still built on MS-DOS, but they were capable of running 32-bit apps (hybrid kernel), and they had an updated interface.
