    • Abstract:
      This article focuses on several versions of the operating system (OS) Windows developed by Microsoft Corp. According to research firm IDC, Windows runs on 94 percent of the world's desktop and notebook computers. More than 330 million machines run business versions of the OS, including Windows NT, Windows 2000 Professional, and Windows XP Pro and more than 242 million run consumer versions, such as Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, and Windows XP Home. In recent months, Microsoft has flooded these emerging markets with an inexpensive version of the platform, called Windows Starter Edition, bringing prices in line with local income levels. IDC reports that more PDAs now ship with Microsoft's Windows Mobile OS than with Palm OS, and rumor has it that Palm devices will soon ship with Windows. In recent years, Windows machines have come under serious attack from viruses, spyware, and other malicious applications. Based in part on code written well before malware could spread so quickly over the Internet, Windows is vulnerable to such attacks, and because it runs on so many machines, black hats are far more likely to target the OS.
