QFE... I personally believe it's never going to be found (or that it possible didn't even exist), and people spewing out fakes left and right isn't gonna help anyone, it's just going to irritate people and if it ever does get found no-one's going to be interested. Let's just throw it in the same bit bucket as Neptune 5000 and be done with it.
Seconded. If someone has it, they're not going to release it to the public, because they know what it's worth.

I do believe it was actually a rule on OSBA to not post about this, but this was created by TEH SHAD when he was pissed off I do believe, lol.
lol, internet

Well I honestly don't know if what I have is or isn't 1.0, but I got it from somewhere that said it was. So if it's a fake we're no worse off and if it is the real thing then woot! for us all. If anyone wants it click here, and really I don't care what you rude people think...

beta4me, please ignore the stubborn people in this thread. They don't have any "hope" of finding Windows 1.00 which is why they are acting as they are.

We would love for you to post your copy so we can check it out, and your statement is correct, we won't be any worse off.

I think creating a validation and verification batch for Windows 1.0 could be funny. There is too many stupid build leaked as Windows 1.0 ... I've a real floppy with "Windows 1.0" from an IBM Box, but it's a 1.02 or 1.03 version in english....

thats a fake. Cga.lgo says 1.00 but that website says it is a fake. made by a person who used a hex editor to change all th 1.01s to 1.00.

Technically, they're not lieing, since it is a version of "Windows 1.0", its not like they put "Windows 1.00" is it?

1.4 is probably fake, and 2.9 is indeed fake.

i bet that Microsoft isn't ever going to give out the genuine windows 1.00 'cause:

a) that killer bug i keep hearing about thats in the system, i bet they're trying to avoid this senario "OMG, i gotz ur windows 1.0 andz install it on my compy and it died!!!! im gonna sue ur sorrie arse!!!!!11!!11!!1111!oneoneeleven!!!"

2)its been years since it debuted, they probubly destroyed the last consumer copies years ago (but they might still have the equivilent to a master disk lying around...i dunno)

the best chance of finding it is to search flea markets, garage sales, and (dun-dun-DUN!) Ebay in my opinion.... im searching for it too so if by the extremely remote, almost impossible chance that i find it, ill upload it.

How about a contest for comical analogies?
Here is my shot:

Finding Windows 1.00 is like finding Jesus...

Finding Windows 1.00 is like finding real meat in a Big Mac

Finding Windows 1.00 is like finding a AMD CPU in a Mac

Finding Windows 1.00 is like using NTFS on a 8" floppy disk

Finding Windows 1.00 is like installing Windows Vista on a Commodore 64

OT: My sister said this to me the last day "Does the "64" in Commodore 64 means 64 bit CPU?"

I am sure some day we will get Windows Version 1.00, who knows when?

Will there be a big announcement when we finally get it?

Of course there'll be an announcement – if the copy we find is indeed real. Thus, we need a sure way to verify that. (Or we need to know in which way 1.00 differs from 1.01, that capital bug, for example).

I'd assume it's something major, yet hard to replicate (otherwise it would have been detected before the launch).

Another theory is that 1.00 never existed in the first place, and Windows started at 1.01.
