35 years ago, in 1985, the legendary Windows 1.0 appeared

Windows 1.0 required two floppy disks, 256 KB of RAM, and a graphics card to run.

35 years ago, in 1985, the legendary Windows 1.0 appeared. It was launched on November 20. Now, after so many years, billions of devices are running on this system. Windows 1.0 had a graphical windowing interface and a few basic programs. Over time, the developers began to add many new features that are now used by a huge number of people.

The very first Windows operating system included only a clock, a notepad, a writing program, Write, a paint program, a calculator, and one Reversi game.

Windows 1.0 required two floppy disks, 256 KB of RAM, and a graphics card to run. If there was a need to run several programs, then the requirements increased – a hard disk and 512 KB of RAM.

Windows 10 is about to make a big difference next year. Microsoft is expected to massively update the interface, modernizing the design of some key elements of the “operating system”. Major visual changes include the Start Menu, Tablet Mode, Action Center and File Explorer. At the time, Microsoft was competing with Apple in the OS market, but Windows was destined to become the most popular operating system.

On January 14 this year, as part of Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released a patch for an extremely dangerous vulnerability in the crypt32.dll cryptographic library, which allows spoofing any site on the Internet. However, cumulative update KB4528760 has proven to be problematic for some users. The vulnerability affected all versions of Windows over the past 20 years, starting with Windows NT 4.0.
