Windows NT 3.1

The release of Windows NT 3.1 in August 1993 marked an important milestone for Microsoft. "Windows NT represents nothing less than a fundamental change in the way that companies can address their business computing requirements," Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates said at its release.

Microsoft had built a whole new Operating System from scratch. Windows NT was the first Windows operating system to combine support for high-end client/server business applications with the industry's leading personal productivity applications. The operating system broke new ground in security, operating system power, performance, desktop scalability, and reliability with a range of key new features. These included a pre-emptive multitasking scheduler for Windows-based applications, integrated networking, domain server security, OS/2 and POSIX subsystems, support for multiple processor architectures, and the NTFS file system.

NT started as 3.1 to maintain consistency with Windows 3.1 which at the time many users were using both at home and at work. Windows NT 3.1 was built for business users and was released as a workstation edition and a server edition named Windows NT Advanced Server.
