Windows 3.0 celebrates the 23rd anniversary

Windows 3.0 logoAll eyes are currently on Windows 8 and its successor, the so-called Windows 8.1, but only a few remember that almost 23 years ago today, the tech giant launched one of the most important revamps of its Windows platform.

It was called Windows 3.0 and was mostly supposed to give Microsoft a chance in the fight against Apple, the company that managed to innovate a lot easier in the operating system market at that time.

Windows 3.0

Windows 3.0 brought us the more advanced File Manager, along with a reworked interface that included significant redesigns of the Control Panel and the other menus. It also included Notepad, Paintbrush and Solitaire.

Just like The Register notes, system requirements for Windows 3.0 could easily make us smile today. A Windows 3.0-powered PC had to cope with MS-DOS 3.1, while also including 6 MB of free space and 384 KB of RAM.
