Have you ever wondered that what “XP” means or where the “Windows” comes from? Some operating systems get their names from obvious places, but others need an explanation. Read on to find out how Microsoft’s Windows OS got its name.
We’ve put together the most popular and familiar operating system, of course, Windows with an interesting story behind its name, be sure to teach them to the other readers in the comments.
