when I turned 10

On my 10th birthday (November 20, 1985) Microsoft released Windows 1.0.


lowendmac.com has a nice overview of Windows 1.0. Scroll down to the header that says, “Windows 1.0 ‘No Threat'”. It’s interesting to know that Windows 1.0 had a dock 15-some years before Apple introduced it in OS X.

I was 2. But years later I did play with Windows 1.0 on an old Zenith brand 286.

I was slowly approaching a milestone age, but didn’t know anything about any computer anywhere.
