20 Nov, 2006

Windows is 21 years old today. Microsoft first released Windows 1.0 on 20th November 1985.

When Windows 1.0 was first released, it was priced at US$100 (or about US$177 in today's money).
Microsoft sent out a press kit two years before launching, with a real squeegee and a cloth.
Windows crashes at an estimated 25 million times a day.
