Start of operating systems
In 1975, at a time when most of us were not even planning, Bill Gates and Paul Allen set up a young start-up called Microsoft. The company was a small, resource-rich company with a great vision - to put a personal computer in every home. A year later Apple, then known as Apple Computer, was founded by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. The story of the Linux operating system A little different and starts with the UNIX operating system: its source code was written by Linus Torvalds, who wrote it in the AT & T Bell Labs in 1969 in order to easily access UNIX servers at the university where he studied. He did it for fun and never thought to develop Linux Home hardware, but fate had other plans.

In 1984 has introduced Dark The first computer has a Mac OS that was the beginning of the graphical interface. This operating system, with its various versions, is installed by default on every Macintosh computer ever since.

HWzone's history begins in 2001, but we can not discuss it In the history of Windows Without starting the breakthrough 3 brought with it, and continued with 3.1 and 3.11 windows. These operating systems sold about 10 million copies worldwide, making Windows the most popular OS in 1992. These versions have introduced advanced and impressive visuals with 16 colors, task manager, file manager and print manager. All of these, along with other features, were faster with the 386 processor Intel. The 3.11 version added support for P2P workgroups, and in the meantime, Server systems were not available.
Microsoft Introduces First 32 Bit System
A year later Microsoft introduces Windows NT, The first bit 32 system. The system was called Windows NT 3.1, but do not get confused with the usual 3.1 version: This is a project that started in the 80 and is not based on the operating system Windows 3.11. Bill Gates referred to the operating system and said: "Windows NT is a fundamental change in the way companies can deliver their business computing needs."

In 1994 is displayed the first version of Red Hat Linux (Red Hat Linux - one of the Linux versions we've chosen to detail). The first Linux system was written in 1991, with no purpose in making it an operating system in itself. Initially, Red Hat was just an emulator designed to communicate with large Unix servers. Linux Itself was considered an underground and controversial system, and there were many who called it a "free alternative to Unix."
Microsoft Launches Microsoft Office Windows 95
"It's here," began the press conference in which Bill Gates unveiled 95 windows. It was an age when computers slowly began to connect to the Internet, and suddenly words like e-mail, Web browser and modem appeared. Windows 95 first introduced the "Start" button that has become the trademark of Windows (which accompanies us to this day), along with the possibilities to minimize and maximize windows with the taskbar, when it also appears here at the premiere. The minimum system requirements for this advanced Windows distribution included the 386DX processor Intel And 4 megabytes of RAM, with recommended requirements for 486 and 8 megabytes of RAM. The system even introduced browser אינטרנט So that users, at least the lucky ones who were connected to the Internet at the time, could easily surf.

One year after the release of the first Red Hat version, Red Hat Software and Red Hat's second release. A year later Red Hat started selling administrative functions to businesses. While Microsoft is working hard to provide the end-user with as simple a user experience as possible, Linux distributions use open source, free software licenses and extensive customization options to reach the business market and provide much cheaper and stable solutions. After all, a lot of developers around the world contributed to the development work.
And 98 windows in, true, 1998
In 1998 Microsoft introduced the Windows 98, the latest system running MS-DOS under the hood and the first designed specifically for home computers. In order to wink at the home user, Windows 98 supported playing DVDs and USB devices and even being able to unlock Windows Faster than ever. The development of the Internet and various Internet applications have led Microsoft to focus on the user experience and dramatically improve Google browser Internet Explorer and email software to meet growing user demand for applications and services Network.
At the same time, Red Hat receives support from Oracle and the certification of RHCE (certification by Red Hat for practical engineers who are capable of operating and managing RAD systems). A year later, IBM Signed a partnership agreement with Red Hat, and Dell is the first to install RAD on its servers. Red Hat's 6 version is commensurate, and the company starts trading on the stock exchange.
