Windows 2.x is a graphical personal computer operating environment developed by Microsoft. It was said to look almost the same to the first Mac OS and more closely matched Microsoft's pre-release publicity for Windows 1.0.

Windows 2.1x[change | change source]

Five months after the release of Windows 2.03, Microsoft released Windows 2.10, and after 10 months, Windows 2.11. They were the first versions that require an Intel 80286 or 80386 processor to run.
