 PostPost subject: Quick question regarding Windows 1.0        Posted: Sun Oct 19, 2008 12:01 am

Hi all,

I was just surfing around and happened to notice that it looks like Windows 1.0 finally has been found and released, though it seems to have happened some time ago. Is the Windows Premiere Edition (found on RapidShare) the real Windows 1.0 or has another version been released? I'm a bit confused since I can't access the conversations in the protected forums (not yet, anyway :)).

Thanks!

The ftp has Windows Premiere Edition but you need to get your 10 contributing posts and apply for the advance members group. I am not sure if the one on RS is real, but to get it guaranteed then you should get it from BA.

The Windows 1.0 as you know as "Premiere Edition" is the real one yes, and it's the only one that is final 1.0.

The one on RS is the real one - that was the first place it was uploaded/leaked.

Just to confirm, the Windows Premiere Edition in BA was also the one featured in the 1983 COMDEX tech show, right?

No, they're actually two different versions. What you see featured in the 1983 COMDEX tech show was "Interface Manager", not Windows Premeire Edition 1.00. The copy of Windows 1.00 DR5 on the servers is much closer to Interface Manager than Windows Premeire Edition 1.00.
