Happy 20th birthday Windows

A bit off topic I know but Oracle does run on Windows and it does need to be secured on there as well. It was 20 years ago on Sunday since Windows 1.0 was released to the world - 20th November 1985. I found a news article talking about it "ANNIVERSARY: Happy 20th Microsoft Windows Birthday" that includes the original press release and also a screen dump of what it looked like. I think I have a copy in my box of CDs and disks. I certainly have VB 1.0 on 5 and a quarter floppies!
