Category:Windows — Windows™ is a proprietary (meaning 'paid for', or commercial) operating system (OS) for computers, developed, updated, and marketed by Microsoft Corporation. Originally developed for use on desktop computers with Intel microcontrollers, which were then using a text-based operating system called MS-DOS, short for 'Microsoft disk operating system' (itself a fundamental copy of the earlier DR-DOS), 'windows' based operating systems were a quantum leap in terms of usabiliy (initially) and capability (subsequently); due to it changing from the then existing text-based OS, to a visually pleasing 'graphical user interface', commonly abbreviated GUI.

Today, Microsoft Windows is standard installation on a massive array of laptops, along with the more traditional desktop computers. Crucially, MS Windows was developed to work on chipsets from AMD as well as its original Intel chips.
