Windows 3.0: 25 years old today

Friday, May 22, 2015 in Technical Articles (Views: 2473)
It seems hard to believe that a quarter century has passed since the release of Windows 3.0. Some called it a passing fad, some embraced it because it was different, others held steadfastly to DOS. And, as today, Mac users, didn't care.



To throw a bone to those Mac users, all those terms: Icon, Control Panel, Window… Those, of course, Apple terms "repurposed" into Windows.



Amazing looking back that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Some of us still use Notepad, and religiously so. Interfaces may have changed, hardware may have changed, but it seems so many things are still the same.

Windows 3.0, 25 years old, today. Happy Birthday.
