A program that is written to run under the
Microsoft Windows operating system, also
called a "Windows app."
All 32bit Windows applications run in the

Visual Basic 1.0 was introduced in
1991. The drag and drop design for
creating the user interface is
derived from a prototype form

contracted with Cooper and his
associates to develop Tripod into a
programmable form system for
Windows 3.0, under the code name
Ruby (no relation to the later Ruby
programming language).
