Windows operating system is very popular used by human audiences for each operating system on the device that he used such as laptops, computers, notebooks, etc. The owner and founder of Windows is a millionaire and entered as the ranks of the richest man in the world, namely Bill Gates
So no wonder why a Bill Gates is rich, because from various companies he has and tekuni, from until he was still pioneering until now the richest man in the world, an example of his success is the Windows operating system. Windows itself is a development and created by Microsoft
The development of Windows has been very varied in terms of appearance, speed and of course will continue to increase in a more modern times
Here are some of these Windows developments from version one to another
Windows 1.0 operating system was released on November 20, 1985 and inaugurated the first time on November 10, 1983 dubbed Windows Graphic Environment 1.0. Windows 1.0 is not a complete operating system, but only extends the capabilities of MS-DOS with the addition of a 16-bit based graphical interface. Windows 1.0 also has the same problems and weaknesses that MS-DOS has. In addition, Apple is suing Microsoft to limit Microsoft’s ability. For example, windows in Windows 1.0 can only be displayed on screen “tile” only, so the window can not overlap each other. Of course, Windows 1.0 has enough shortcomings so it is not so well known in the community.
Windows 2.0 has the advantage of being able to use the latest processor that year, Intel 286 Processor, larger memory, and communication features between applications using Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE). With improved graphics support, users can now manage large sizes of small windows and add support for keyboards. So, we can use Windows with only the keyboard and also support Keyboard Shortcut. Windows 2.0 itself was launched on December 9, 1987. Then, the next release of Windows 2.1 to Windows 2.03, adding features that are Protected Mode and the use of greater memory on Intel 386 processor.
Windows 3.0 was released on May 22, 1990. Windows 3.0 has the ability to support SVGA or XGA graphics card and icon. Microsoft provides SDK (Software Development Kit) so that software developers can develop applications to be able to run on Windows 3.0 this. This system introduces Virtual Device Driver (VXD) which is useful to minimize dependency of each driver on certain hardware. This system evolved into Windows 3.1 which introduces Multimedia and True Type Font features. This system facilitates End-User due to Drag and Drop feature. Windows version 3.0 is evolving into Windows 3.11 which supports NetWorking applications.
Windows 95, which has the Chicago code name in its development period, was released on August 24, 1995. Windows 95 has been integrated with 32-bit TCP / IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol) and has supported Internet networking, dial-up networking, and support Plug and Play, where we can install the Device by just plugging its hardware cable. 32-bit versions of Windows 95 have enhanced multiedia capabilities, richer features for mobile computing, and integrated Networking.
On June 25, 1998, Microsoft released a new Windows operating system, known as Windows 98. Windows 98 is considered a minor revision to Windows 95, but is generally viewed much more stable and reliable than its predecessor, Windows 95. Windows 98 includes many New hardware drivers and better FAT32 file system support allowing partitions to have capacities greater than 2 gigabytes, a restriction contained within Windows 95. USB support in Windows 98 is also much better than its predecessor. The presence of Windows 98 invites a lot of controversy when Microsoft enters the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser into the operating system and can not be unplugged, making Windows Explorer and the Windows GUI capable of displaying directories as if they were web pages.
Windows 2000 is included in the Windows NT family. Released on February 17, 2000, Windows 2000 is specifically made for businesses. There are versu Professional, Server, Advanced Server and Datacenter Server. For home users, Windows released Windows ME a few months later. New features adopted from Windows 98 are also embedded in them, such as enhanced Device Manager (using Microsoft Management Console), Windows Media Player, and DirectX 6.1 (which allows the Windows NT kernel-based operating system to run games).
Windows ME (Millennium Edition)
As the name implies, Windows ME was released on 14 September 2000 which is often referred to as the millennium year. Compared to Windows 98, Windows ME has a much faster boot time. In Windows this is the first time there is a feature of System Restore to restore the PC to a certain point if you encounter problems. However, many think that Windows ME is a failed product that has many problems. The existence of this Windows ME was immediately replaced by other Windows NT Family (XP, Vista, 7, and Windows 8).
In 2001, Microsoft introduced Windows XP (code-named “Whistler” during development), after the release of several Windows-based versions of Windows 9x and NT, Microsoft successfully unified the two product lines Windows XP uses the Windows NT 5.1 kernel, The well-known Windows NT kernel with its stability to enter the home consumer market, to replace the aging 16/32-bit Windows 9x-based products Windows XP is the oldest version of Windows operating system (at least to this day), as it ranges from From 2001 to 2007, when Windows Vista was released to consumers.The Windows XP operating system ranks were finally forwarded by Windows Vista on January 30, 2007.
On November 30, 2006, Microsoft launched a new version of Windows for home and business users on January 30, 2007 under the name Windows Vista. The features in Windows Vista are radical changes, especially on the user-interface. Security capabilities are also added by Microsoft, so Microsoft claims this latest version is more stable, secure, and pamper computer users (although according to many people these things already exist in Windows XP).
The next release after Windows Vista is Windows 7, previously known as Blackcomb and Vienna. When it was first released, Windows has a NT version 6.1 build 7600 kernel, a repair of Windows Vista where the first release has a kernel NT 6.0 build 6000. Windows 7, which was released on October 22, 2009 has a new security and features, : Jump List, Taskbar that opens the program with a small view, Windows Media Player 12, Internet Explorer 8, and others. Some of the unique features are the sidebar being renamed Gadgets and freely placed anywhere on the desktop (unlike the Sidebar that can only be placed in a certain place). It makes Windows 7 interesting.
Windows 8 is the next version of Microsoft Windows, a series of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and business computers, laptops, netbooks, tablet PCs, servers, and media center PCs. One method to achieve this is to reduce the burden of RAM usage in the Operating System. The savings in RAM usage in Windows 8 certainly can significantly extend the use of PCs that use batteries (laptop or tablet PC) because RAM is one of the components in computers that use the most electricity.
Windows deliberately did not issue a version of windows 9 because the users will assume that windows 9 is used windows 95 or windows 98 because it started with 9, if it continues to be used will be dangerous. So with that Windows directly produce windows 10 to replace windows 9 that should not be produced. Windows is the latest version of all windows software with all sophistication makes one of the many Operating System software is much loved by the community, simple, interesting, and sophisticated.
