  • well... friend.. its mot windows operating system actually... its actually MICROSOFT'S OPERATING SYSTEM.. but since, each and every application was designed to be opened in an WINDOW-LIKE format, its named as, WINDOWS OPERATING SYSTEM.. (ITS NOT WINDOW'S OPERATING SYSTEM)

  • First of all, let me say that its an excellent question .

    We work on it every now & then, we can't live without it, it has changed our lives .................................

    but still we don't know the reason behind its name. I really feel ashamed for it. But still let me have a guess

     

    Maybe bacause it was the first attempt towards building up of the GUI & had the provision that every new application opened in new WINDOWS.

    Please mark my reply as Helpful if you appreciate my feelings!!
