Microsoft Introduces Windows

Microsoft announces a new product, Windows, to compete with other graphical environments for computers, such as interface on the Apple Lisa. After several delays, Windows 1.0 finally became available to the public in 1985. Its major features included pull-down menus, tiled windows, mouse support, and cooperative multitasking of the programís applications. Although Windows 1.0 saw some use, the Windows interface did not gain general acceptance until version 3.0.
