What do y’all think about this? In case you haven’t heard, Microsoft is advertising for Windows 1.0 again including changing its profile picture on social media and posting old ads for Word and other software that you could get when Windows 1.0 came out. Any guesses as to what this could mean?

On another note, I just realized Windows came out on my birthday. Coolio!

I agree with the widespread conjecture that this is part of the marketing campaign for the third season of Stranger Things.

Looks like Microsoft is releasing a Windows 1.0 themed game called "Windows 1.11" as its contribution to the ST3 hype. It's exactly this kind of stupidity that I expected them to come up with. Somehow they managed to get a lot of the UI wrong, just look at the close button at the top right.

Some people hoped they would release the Windows 1.0 source code. Maybe next time, I guess.

To be fair, this is exactly what I hoped for... I'm pretty disappointed that all of this is just about Stranger Things.

Windows 1.11 runs on top of Windows 10 instead of DOS. And it's 775 MB. Windows 1.11 is a Windows 10 app. https://www.neowin.net/news/windows-111 ... spired-app

I’ve been hearing rumors that Windows 1.0 would get open-sourced. It would definitely be a surprise if the rumor is true.
