Version 1.01 for Tulip PC<< Go back
A Dutch company called Tulip Computers (previously known as CompuData) made several PC-compatible computers during the 80s and shipped Windows 1.0 with them. This release comes on five 5.25" 360 kB floppy disks and is in English. A two disk update set for their previous release (designated 1.xx/1.xy) also exists and converts that release into this one by updating core system files and adding Windows Write. Applications are not updated.
It's dated 23rd February 1986 and is designated as TC 1.00. Setup has some minor differences and asks you to chose a keyboad layout. The available layouts are United States, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden/Finland and United Kingdom. The default installation path is just C:\ instead of the usual C:\WINDOWS. Control Panel allows you to change your regional settings.
