What is the history of Windows?
Microsoft Windows was originally developed and released as MS Windows 1.0 AKA "Windows 85" by who else? Microsoft, in October of 1985 about a year and a half after Apple Computer intorduced the Macintosh. Naturally, it was a copyright infringement (in the beginning) program designed to make MS DOS based IBM PC's operate in a manner similar to the Macintosh that was the beginning of a whole new face and direction of personal computers. However, if you've ever seen windows 85 it is much more primitive looking than even the first Macintosh. It only allows you to multi-task about three maybe 4 programs maximum at once (depending on how much RAM your machine had) and the IBM Intel 286 processor - the most powerful computer at the time only offered a capacity for 2 MEGABYTES of memory, usually being shipped with only 760 KILOBYTES so you had to buy the other 1240KB separately.. very costly in those days too!
Maybe you've had some experience with MS DOS ver. 5.0 and later, if you have you're familiar with the graphical appearance of MS DOS SHELL. Windows 85 didn't look all that much different than that except of course you could barely multi-task and it offered the classic supplimental applications such as Wordpad (write), Notepad, and paint. I'm sure you've seen Windows 3.0 or 3.11 which runs off a program manager on the desktop, in Windows 1.0 through 2.11 it was even more basic. Your applications were run off what was called the MS DOS EXECUTIVE, basically a list even simpler than the file manager where you used the mouse to choose what programs you wanted to run at once and then pray your machine didn't freeze due to limited memory. No, the first version of windows I was genuinely impressed with was Windows 95 because it had the most resembalance to Apple's layout on Macintosh, and from about the mid 80's through 1994 I was a "Mac" guy all the way. Today, Microsoft Windows has created it's own entire appearance and is doing things many scientists deemed questionable years ago and is as advanced as ever. Even the NEWEST Macintosh computers are considered obselete and are not near as compatible as your PC Windows based applications, that's basically the history in a nutshell.

Windows is the term for several software operating systems created by Microsoft. Microsoft took two different routes in its operating systems. It was developed for home use, and for the professional IT user. The home based software included a mainly multimedia supported functionality. The professional IT user based operating systems included a lower ranked multimedia set up, but better networking and security. The versions included Windows 1.0, Windows 2.3, Windows 3.0 (which with 3.1 somewhat overtook the basic user interface of the operating system), Windows 3.1, Windows NT, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista. Of course there were others, but those are some of the major ones. The next Windows operating system, that is not a server, is entitled Windows Vienna, or Windows 7.
First, what computer history do you want to delete? There are quite many kinds of computer history: internet browsing history, application usage history such as Windows media player, cookies, autocomplete form history, etc. If you want to delete internet browsing history, you can find them in your browsers and delete them. But for many other kinds of history like Windows temporary files, using a history cleaner might be better and easier. Anyway, CCleaner is goog…
Windows is the name of Microsoft's operating system. It's name arrives from the older windows versions where you had diffrent applications or folder windows on your screen. At first you could not move one window over another. This is actually a very intresting subject, and i would advice you to read more up on Windows history.
Historically, it started with Windows n.n, such as Windows 2.0, 3.0. 3.1 and 3.11. It then changed to Windows 95 and Windows NT. NT went through serveral versions. Windows 98 supplanted WIN95, and Windows 2000 (WIN2K) was offered as the OS-of-choice to merge the WIN98 and NT streams. Windows ME and XP followed, then Vista and now Windows 7. For a more exact history, try Microsoft's home page and go from there.

Not at all. Windows Neptune was the codename for a home operating system based on Windows 2000 Professional. The project unfortunately couldn't be finished in time, and so Windows ME was released instead. Many of the ideas found in Windows Neptune were later integrated into Windows XP. An alpha ISO was leaked onto the internet, and can still be found on some warez sites. The system is quite buggy and unstable, however, so it serves…

First, what do you mean by saying "all computer history"? There can quite many kinds of computer history: Internet history, cookies, cache, autocomple form history, Windows temp files, applications using history, etc. Taking advantage of a history cleaner program might be better that manually searching and deletion, which is quite time-consuming and troublesome.
The history of Windows dates back to September 1981, when Chase Bishop, a computer scientist, designed the first model of an electronic device and project "Interface Manager" was started. It was announced in November 1983 (after the Apple Lisa, but before the Macintosh) under the name "Windows", but Windows 1.0 was not released until November 1985.
Windows explorer comes with windows and is created by Microsoft. Firefox has nothing to do with windows and works on several other OS (unlike IE), it is created by Mozilla. I generally prefer Firefox because it seams to be faster and smoother. FireFox can have all history easily deleted, IE records it all and never truly deletes it. (history.ie5)
