The First Ever Apple Computer Running Windows

Yesterday we missed this in our look at the first review of Windows ever: Here's the first known photo of an Apple computer running Windows 1.0 software. Yes, Mr. Bootcamp, Windows on Apple in 1983.

It wasn't a Macintosh, but an Apple II with a monochrome screen and PC emulator hardware installed. The board was called the 88 Card, "the only fully functional 8088 processor for the Apple II personal computer" and it had the stunning list price of $US899. But don't fret, because this also included 64K of additional RAM and CP/M 86—if you wanted DOS and Windows you had to buy them separately.
