Windows NT ("New Technology") is a family of Operating Systems produced by Microsoft, the first version of which was released in July 1993. It was originally designed to be a powerful high-level-language-based, processor-independent, multiprocessing, multiuser operating system with features comparable to Unix. It was intended to complement consumer versions of Windows that were based on MS-DOS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_NT

The question does not make sense. Windows NT is an operating system primarily used for use as a server and it uses a graphic user interface.

I do believe Windows NT released in 1993 was the first multitasking O.S.

The original Windows OS was either Windows 1.0, released in 1985 or Windows NT released in 1992. Windows 1.0 is sometimes not considered an actual operating system because it ran inside of MS-DOS as its own executable file. However, it did provide many operating system like features, such as device drivers, virtual memory, (co-operative) multitasking and demand-loading of executable code/static data. Windows NT was its own stand alone Operating System and did not depend upon MS-DOS. In fact, MS-DOS ran inside of Windows NT as a virtual machine! Windows NT was the first operating system to provide "preemptive multitasking" - where the operating system is able to take away a program's control of the CPU against its will so that another program can execute. Windows 95, though still dependent upon MS-DOS as a boot-loader, was closer to a bona fide operating system than Windows 1.0 - but alas, as its name suggests it was released in 1995, thus making it newer than NT.
