Microsoft Windows NT


Wih the same graphical interface as other versions of Windows and simple administration possible from the server console, Windows NT is a force to be reckoned with. Microsoft introduced Windows NT in 1993 with version 3.1 (about the same time Windows 3.1 was taking off as a desktop graphical interface for DOS). No one paid it much heed because it was fairly buggy, and a mountain of hardware was required to run it. This NOS went pretty much unnoticed until version 3.51 was introduced about a year later. Windows NT 3.51 was quite stable and, by this time, hardware vendors had


met the challenge with the 486 and Pentium processors. Because of its similarity to Windows 3.1 and its powerful networking features, Windows NT gained popularity. Microsoft began to put its significant marketing muscle behind it, and Windows NT started to become a viable alternative in the network operating system market previously dominated by Novell NetWare and the various flavors of Unix.
