Windows NT 3.1The
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.
