Windows We Have Known

Where and when did you first encounter "Windows" for the first time? I came in at 3.1 in October, 1992. It was a gutsy thing to say "let's move away from DOS" into the GUI world, but we gambled that DOS was on its way out. Boy were we right. Check out this timeline of the evolution of Windows, with thanks for the link to Wylieblog, who, rumour has it, will be hosting this week's Carnival of the Vanities. Go see.

I actually ran rental software on a WIndows 2.0 machine back in 1988. It was on a PS/2 no less...

Windows? Eek. I dabble there once, for oh, all of six months. One of the many idolizers of the Apple, 'fraid.

Now you need to take it all the way and go GUI UNIX. Apple, baby, Apple!
