Microsoft Windows Logo (Vista/7 Era)

The gaming platform of choice for the vast majority of Might and Magic fans. The most widely used operating system worldwide with an 85-90% usage.

Windows originally started as a mere graphical shell for MS-DOS to compete with early mouse driven GUI interfaces appearing in Unix operating systems and the Mac OS before becoming a fully fledged operating system. Windows 95 marked Windows' start as a well known Gaming Platform and established a standardized platform for Video Cards to use via Direct X. Windows enjoys a hearty backwards compatibility, with the ability for 32 bit versions to run most older software designed even for Windows 3.1 and 64 bit versions to run 32 bit software from Windows 95 onwards.

The free program DOSBox allows Windows users to play their classic DOS Might and Magic games on their modern PCs with little configuration. This gives Windows users access to every Might and Magic game ever created. Also for users of 64 bit Windows, Microsoft Virtual PC may be used to install an older version of Windows that operates independantly of the native OS.

Windows versions range from 1.0 to 3.11, 95, 98, 98se, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and the upcoming Windows 8.
