De um anúncio de uma PC Magazine de 1986:
“Microsoft Windows 1.0 256KB of RAM (640KB recommended), two disk drives (hard drive recommended), DOS 2.0 or later. $99 (in 1986)
Pros: You can launch applications even if you can’t remember how to spell them.
Cons: You’ll need state-of-the-art hardware. That means an 8-MHz PC.
Bottom Line: Will run on top of DOS for years to come!”
