Happy 25th Birthday Windows!

Microsoft Windows completes 25 years today. On November 20, 1985, the first version Windows 1.0 was released.

Can you recall how Windows 1.0 looked like? To be frank, I was born in the same year and no real hands-on experience for me until Windows 95! .

To be completely be honest, I had to some digging on Google images except the last screenshot of Windows 7 which is my present desktop.

Lets start from the first first of Windows –
