    Default Windows 1.0: The Flop That Created An Empire

    Two years later than planned, Microsoft's new graphical operating system went on sale November 20, 1985. It wasn't worth the wait. But a bigger story was soon to unfold, after two years of delays, Microsoft was finally ready to debut the much-promised Microsoft Windows. Ford's Edsel arguably received better reviews. Computer reviewer Erick Sandberg-Diment wrote in his column that "running Windows on a PC with 512K of memory is akin to pouring molasses in the Arctic." That critique was one of many describing the product as an unadulterated flop.
