Windows has served as a platform for the development of new technologies. Where scrappy companies become household names, the internet has been the backbone of global business. Windows was the platform on which the web was born and grew up. Many of us sent our first email, played our first PC game, and wrote our first line of code on this computer. Software on which more than a billion people rely today, Windows is the place people go to create, connect, learn and succeed.
