The tweet by Microsoft stated “Introducing the all-new Windows 1.0, with MS-Dos Executive, Clock, and more,”.
The 13-second video shared by Microsoft brings back the ’80s vibe of Windows. This video also showcases different logos that were used for different versions of Windows. The last logo in this video was of Windows 1.0.
