The old folks know about Windows 3.1, but how many got the first one?

On November 20, 2020, O Windows completed 35 years. The Microsoft operating system has come a long way to reach the Windows 10 and become a practically absolute presence in the computer market, so discussing the impact it has had over the years seems obvious or redundant.

That’s why the people of always creative PC Gamer makes us another suggestion, which we want to extend to Adrenaline readers: how about playing with the very first version of Windows to celebrate your 35th birthday? The website PCJs Project have a Windows 1.0 emulator that you can use directly in your browser.

The best part is that the website lists the minimum requirements needed to run Windows 1.0 on your PC. Does he take it?

– IBM PC XT
– 640Kb of RAM
– A minimum 10MB HDD (formatted)
– IBM EGA

It is interesting to try the first public distribution of Windows and be (kind of painfully) reminded of where it all started with the idea of ​​the first home computers: MS-DOS. The Microsoft operating system emerged mainly as a more “intuitive” interface for using the computer, but it kept much of the original DOS logic, placing a cursor to perform the actions.


– Continues after advertising –

As an extra interesting fact, in fact the Windows emulated by the website is version 1.01. The real Windows 1.0, root, never got to be sold. Despite the version, it was yet another beta version that Microsoft still used for testing. The finished product that was actually placed on floppy disks to be sent to stores, was the Windows 1.01, on November 20, 1985.

To complete the “time tunnel” experience of the emulator prepared by PCjs, it comes with some “disks” already placed in the “drive”, which you can load in the small control panel under the emulation window. There are even a few games from the 80s to spend some nostalgic time on your Sunday afternoon.
