Very interesting video from the Windows 1.0 launch has been posted on MSDN Channel 9's History of Microsoft show. Includes video of speeches by Ballmer and Gates talking about the difficulties of developing Windows, and a live demo of Windows by Gates.

Quote from Bill Gates' speech: "We used to have a lot of meetings, and we'd sit and say 'Look, we've just gotta cut features, we've gotta get this thing out, what can we do?' And so Steve came up with this idea that we could rename the thing Microsoft Window!"

Also, Ballmer talks about activating an easter egg in Windows... it would be interesting to see if this still works.
