Since its appearance in 1985, Microsoft Windows has changed from the original graphical user interface based on MS-DOS to the subsequent multi-window interface, and its version has been constantly upgraded as the development of computer hardware technology. Its architecture is from 16-bit, to 32-bit, to 64-bit; and its version from the original Windows 1.0 to the well-known Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows 11 these desktop systems, as well as Windows Server this kind of enterprise system.
Here’s a quick overview of some of the most important versions of Windows in history. The first one is Windows 3.0 that was released in 1990. It is Windows’ first major milestone, which led to its overwhelming commercial success in establishing the Windows system’s monopoly position in the PC field. Of course, many people would prefer the more full-fledged Windows 3.1 (released in 1992) that was to address the shortcomings of Windows 3.0 as Microsoft’s cross-generational work.
On August 24, 1995, Microsoft released Windows 95, which is the first 32-bit operating system that does not require DOS to be installed first. Most of its kernel code was rewritten. Although some 16-bit code (such as user.exe and gdi.exe) still exists in Windows 95, most of the code is 32-bit. In addition, it has a fresh-new graphical user interface, improving the OS’s learnability, usability and efficiency.
Windows 98 is a 16-bit + 32-bit hybrid operating system that was released in 1998, which is essentially an improved version of Windows 95. It is faster, more stable, and more powerful than Windows 95 in functionality, security and many other aspects. It is the most widely used operating system after DOS, Windows 3.x and Windows 95. The more collectible version is, of course, the Windows 98 SE (Second Edition) released in 1999, which includes a series of improvements on the basis of Windows 98.
Windows ME (short for Windows Millennium Edition) was launched in 2000. It was developed based on Windows 9x, and aimed primarily at families and individuals. Although it improved support for multimedia and hardware devices, and added some new features, its poor stability and reliability meant that quite a few older DOS programs cannot run on it. That’s why it only lived for one year before being replaced by Windows XP.
Windows NT (short for New Technology) is a pure 32-bit operating system, using the advanced NT core technology. The Windows NT 4.0 released in April 1996 is a milestone in the NT family, primarily designed for workstations, network servers and large-scale computers. It is tightly integrated with communications services, provides file & print services, can run client/server applications, and has built-in Internet/Intranet functionality.
Released in 1999, Windows 2000 (originally called Windows NT 5.0) is a 32-bit operating system following Microsoft’s Windows NT family, also a new milestone in the development history of Windows operating system. Its client edition (Professional Edition) was replaced by Windows XP in 2001, and the Server Edition was replaced by Windows Server 2003 in 2003.
Windows XP (XP stands for eXPerience), which was released in 2001, no longer named after the year as Microsoft had always done (like Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows 2000), but named the brand-new operating system after a brand-new name. Under the guidance of brand-new technology and functions, it enabled users to have a more rich and extensive fresh-new computer usage experience, and to feel the fun brought by science and technology. Windows XP provided several editions according to the needs of different users. The most commonly used editions are Windows XP Home Edition for personal users and Windows XP Professional Edition for business users.
Windows Vista, released in 2005, is one version with the longest release interval in Windows history. It is still one of the worst versions of Windows, although it added hundreds of new features and made security improvements over its predecessor Windows XP, such as the first introduction of user management mechanism (UAC = User Account Control) and the built-in, free anti-malware component Windows Defender.
In 2009, Microsoft released Windows 7, whose core version number is Windows NT 6.1. It can be used in home and business work environments, on laptop, tablet, multimedia center, etc., and launched Starter Edition, Home Basic/Premium Edition, Professional Edition, Enterprise Edition, Ultimate Edition, and more. Its startup time was drastically reduced, first introduced a simple way to search and use information, and made the Windows Aero special effects be more gorgeous and beautiful.
Windows 8, launched in 2012, is a revolutionary operating system. It aims to make people’s daily computer operation easier and faster, and to provide people with an efficient and friendly working environment. Windows 8 supports PCs (X86 architecture) and tablets (X86 architecture or ARM architecture). It dramatically changed the former operation logic in order to provide better on-screen touch support. The graphics and operation mode of this new OS were greatly changed, and a brand-new Metro style user interface was employed.
Windows 8.1 released in 2013 is actually a collection of multiple important updates that differ from Windows 8. Since then, Microsoft has standardized the upgrading process of operating system, so as to provide users with more regular OS upgrades. Windows 8.1 serves as a bridge between the past and the future, paving the way well for the later Windows 10.
Windows 10, released in 2015, is an operating system for both PCs and tablets. Its name skipped the number “9”. This is most likely to avoid confusions in many ways due to the conflict with Windows 9x. For example, a large number of third-party developers will use “Windows 9” to determine whether an OS is Windows 9x, which will cause Windows 9 to be misinterpreted as Windows 95/98. Of course, Windows 10 was just in time for a fresh start, after all even its kernel version number jumped to NT 10.0.
After the post for Microsoft Windows All Versions 64-bit Official Setup (Original ISO) AIO, some users of AppNee suggested making a post that specially collects 32-bit versions of Windows, so Microsoft Windows All Versions 32-bit Official Setup (Original ISO) AIO has finally arrived. However, I would like to make it clear in advance that what such a collective nature of post can bring to you is not practicability, but more to meet the needs of your collection purpose. In other words, the time and effort wasted in releasing these resources will not be in direct proportion to the expected value of AppNee to share them. Anyway, AppNee is no stranger to such posts, and doesn’t care about this problem.
With the practicability and actual usage situations in mind (almost no one is using a 32-bit operating system anymore, I guess), AppNee chose to reserve all the system files in order to save a lot of server space and uploading time. If you really need any of these 32-bit Windows OS released here, then you can contact us via email to upload it for you.
