If you’re fascinated by old school computing and how it has progressed, then this emulator that runs Windows 1 in your browser will give you plenty of joy.

Programs available via this demo of Windows 1.01 — which was originally released in 1985 — include Notes, Clock, Reversi, Paint and more.


The emulator was developed by Jeff Par, and flagged by Australia-based James Friend. Friend himself created a Mac System 7 Demo and a Windows 3.0 Demo to let you fully relive your nostalgia across multiple platforms.
