    Before Windows, there have been a lot of different computer brands, with different operating systems...Windows is only recent computer history, and came long after the Lisa (predecessor of the Mac).
    There were systems using a graphical user interface before Windows. When the Atari ST, the Commodore Amiga or the first Mac came out (all being GUI-based), PC users back then still mainly used MS DOS, which was only a command line interface.

    Google around a bit about computer history, and you will see that, allthough Microsoft is number one today, there has been a computer world before that aera... :cool:

    The ancestor of MS DOS is CP/M, which Gates bought, but not from Xerox.
    Xerox is the inventor of the graphical user interface, on which all early GUI systems are based.

    Just for the record: MS DOS isn't MS Windows, and vice versa...

    It seems that there are lots of people here that are too young to know much about the pre-Windows aera... gee, makes me feel so old... neye:
