On November 20, 1985, Microsoft Windows 1.0 came under the code name "Interface Manager". The operating system has replaced MS-DOS and has been an important milestone. Even today, Windows 10 combines certain features of the first operating system. At that time, 85% of the source code was written in the programming language C, an important part of the program in the machine language assembler. Only hardware, such as a mouse and hard drive or color graphics card, was still too expensive for many users. Anniversary, a review of Windows versions over the last three decades.
