Windows 1.0

Windows 1.0 was a revolutionary operating system from the makers of Windows BC. It pioneered creating the Blue Screen of Death at startup and destroying whole computers. Microsoft's original strategy was to improve the existing DOS operating system by creating a little bit more verbosity, so users would know what they were doing, and to combat Bell Labs' UNIX operating system. Unfortunately for Microsoft, but fortunately for Nebraska, the source code was leaked over several IRC channels, and users were able to remove the dongle detection code. Microsoft lost almost all of the initial $300 investment which went into the creation of windows 1.0 and the $99,700 investment on their ad campaign.

For the religious among us who choose to believe lies, the so-called experts at Wikipedia have an article about Windows 1.0.

edit Source Code for Windows 1.0

Source code For Windows 1.0:

#include <dos.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <windows.h>

#define COM1 0x3F8
#define GET_OK '+'
#define '1337'
#define WINVER 1

int system(char* error)
{
  return -3;
}

int main(char argc, char **argv)
{
   /*check if windows dongle is present*/
   outportb(COM1, GET_OK);
   if(!(inportb(COM1)=='W' && inportb(COM1)== 'i' &&
        inportb(COM1)=='n' && inportb(COM1)=='1' ))
      {
         /*tell user where to install dongle*/
         perror("Please install dongle on COM 1\n");
         return 1;
      }
   
   if(argc>2)
   {
      printf("Windows is now executing %s, please wait......\n",argv[1]);
      for(int i=system(argv[1]); ; i++) {
        if(i == argc*WINVER) KeBugCheck(0x0);
      }
   }
   else
   {
      perror("Fatal 0E Error!\n");
      return 1;
   }

   return 0;
}

During the beta testing of the pre 1.0 versions of windows, one of the beta testers warned that Windows 1.0 was not all the useful, and Microsoft would have to vastly improve the OS to compete. It was not until Windows 2.0 that the OS served as a full program manager, even then, it rarely worked.


This is the internal alpha version of 1.0 which Microsoft had been running internally:

/*Windows 1.0 codename CodeMonkey super secret alpha release*/
int main() 
{ 
   return !(printf("Please type the name of the program you wish to execute:\n")); 
}

The term Blue Screen of Death was still unknown to windows, it was invented in 1992 with the release of Windows 3.1 for Work groups.

edit Support and Terrorism

Windows 1.0 was supported by Microsoft for sixteen years, until December 31 2001. Windows 1.0 was the longest supported operating system of the Microsoft Windows family of operating systems.

Windows 1.0 users were known to burn the users of Windows for Workgroups 3.11 while screaming "Eat it, Windows for Workgroups." Police tolerated this because they support the old school.

Windows 1.0 is a favoured OS for uncyclopedia copyeditors due to its common spell check errors
