siliconbits writes “Some say that the Windows 3.0 GUI (remember, it needed MS-DOS/DR-DOS to work) was the single most important version as it allowed Microsoft to get its day. The first truly successful Windows operating system is twenty years old today; Windows 3.0 was launched on the 22nd of May 1990 and was the successor to Windows 2.1x.”
