Microsoft has released nine major versions since its first release in 1985. After 29 years, Windows looks very different, but still familiar with the elements that have stood the test of time, increase computing power and – most recently – move away from the keyboard and mouse on the touch screen.
We have created a list of versions of Windows, starting with the operating system Windows 1.0. Distinguishing between versions and not OS names is important for both developers and average users. Here is a list of Windows OS version numbers
