Once upon a time, I asked this question to the 3 children who did not go to school -

To 5 year's old boy - "What is OS?".
His Ans - "Orange Soup."
My reaction - πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ "Children's brains go on eating things mostly."

To 10 years old boy - "What is Windows?".
His Ans - "The windows are small doors through which thieves enter our homes."
My reaction - 😜😜 "You will surely become a cop by growing up."

To 18 year's old boy - "What is Windows?".
His Ans - "The windows are those from which I peer my girlfriend."
My reaction - "Inside you is Romeo's soul." πŸ˜œπŸ˜œ.

That is why people say that it is necessary to go to school. So dear friends that were just for fun (LOL). So let's discuss the actual topic -

Windows is an Operating System that has been developed by 
Microsoft Company.

Now those who do not know what operating systems are, let me tell them that they are nothing else but just the big software or set of programs that operate other small software and control the hardware and also they are controlled by the hardware.

There are many operating systems in the world that have been developed by different companies. Some of them, which are widely used in the world, are -

In this operating system, different programs can be run in different windows; that's why it is called so. In simple words, we can say that here Windows means multitasking.

Showing many programs running in different windows.

This is a GUI(Graphical User Interface) based program or operating system.

This makes our work very easy, and we do not have to memorize the coding because the entire interface is based on graphics.

In very past days, if we had to open a program, then we had to open it by writing codes, but with the help of  GUI by only one Click, we can open or close any program.


Microsoft Windows was first announced by Bill Gates on 10 November 1983, but this was not available commercially in the market.

Microsoft had upgraded its operating system MS-DOS to Windows Operating System. It was the command-based OS that needed to remember all the commands to run, causing the people to have trouble running it. 

Then Bill Gates and his team planned to create an OS in which people do not need to remember commands, and the result was this excellent OS, which is nowadays the world's leading symbol.

In this way, Microsoft company first introduced Windows version 1.0 on 20 November 1985. This was a commercial release for all. It was a very great upgrade to MS-DOS.

The version 1.0 was based on MS-DOS commands, but it was a GUI (Graphical User Interface) based program in which the users did not need to remember the commands

This OS provided click and move functionalities to run the programs which were easy to apply. 

This was the first stairway of their company's progression, and later Microsoft developed so many versions, and people loved them by using.

In Computer Operating SystemsWindows is the most used operating system in the world.

The worldwide market share of this operating system in computer operating systems is 87.47 percent, which is a huge number.

It is presented below a chart of the most used OS' and their worldwide market shares in the world

Computer OS global stats chart (June 2019 Report).

Some reasons why it is used mostly in the world -

  1. It has a very simple and clear user interface, which is based on Graphics (GUI).
  2. This OS is very easy to use and repair.
  3. Their License and support are for a lifetime while the version not shut down.
  4. They provide software and security updates regularly.
  5. Huge numbers of supporters and developers are available.     
  6. Microsoft provides other packages in/with the windows like MS-OFFICE, MS-EXCEL, MS-POWERPOINT, etc. which are very, very useful, and best in the world.
  7. Their support team's work is outstanding.
  8. They provide various versions for individuals, organizations, companies, schools, developers, etc. and in this way, they have covered all the categories.

Some reasons why it is not good -

  1. Due to having the most users in the world, its piracy is also the highest.
  2. It's easy to hack because so much pirated Windows are there in use, and these OS have some security issues always.
  3. Its price is high.
  4. This OS becomes slower with time.
  5. They have some bugs always.
