Windows is the name of a series of operating systems created by Microsoft.

History

Windows 1.0, Windows 1.01, Windows 1.02, Windows 1.03, Windows 1.04, 2.0, 2.1, and 2.11 had 16-bit file access. Windows 3.0, 3.1, 3.11, Windows for Workgroups 3.1, and the Simplified Chinese-exclusive Windows 3.2 also had 16-bit file access but weren't compatible with Windows 1.0 and 2.x due to the use of protected mode. All of these versions relied on the DOS operating system for essential functions, and thus in most cases were restricted to the 16-bit architecture of DOS. Windows for Workgroups 3.11 also relied on DOS but had a 32-bit protected mode driver instead of the standard 16-bit driver to allow for 32-bit disk access.

Windows NT 3.1 was the first version that was a complete 32-bit operating system. It ran DOS programs through a DOS-based Virtual DOS Machine. This VDM was also present in Windows/386 2.10, Windows 3.0, 3.1, and Windows for Workgroups 3.1 and 3.11. 16-bit Windows applications were run through a compatibility layer known as Windows on Windows. This DOS-based VDM and WoW compatibility layer for backwards compatibility continued in Windows NT 3.5, Windows NT 3.51, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows 2000, and Windows ME. Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10 dropped the DOS-based VDM but 16-bit the Windows on Windows compatibility layer still exists on 32-bit versions of Windows. 64-bit versions, however, do not have any 16-bit compatibility layer.
