Windows 3.0 was the first popular version of Windows, having sold 10 million copies. At that time, many people were accustomed to text-based DOS and had never used a mouse. The Solitaire It was probably the first application and even a game, which taught users how to drag and drop in a colorful and very addictive way.
The game was created by Wes Cherry when he did his summer internship at Microsoft in 1988, and not a single cent was paid for it. In its original version it even had a "boss function" that allowed you to display a fake spreadsheet if your boss suddenly appeared. However, this feature never reached the final version of Windows 3.0.
The Solitaire not only is it a great game, but it was a way to control the speed of your computer. It started shortly after Intel introduced the 80286 processor, which bounced the cards at a realistic speed. THE Microsoft obviously made the animation according to your computer performance, so by the time the Pentium processor arrived, it was running at high speed.
The Solitaire was removed from Windows in version 8, but the Microsoft brought it back for Windows 10 in 2015. The Collection Solitaire of Microsoft It now has five different games, along with daily challenges, Xbox Live integration and even contests. To celebrate the anniversary, the Microsoft invites players to participate in its event "In order to reach most games Microsoft Solitaire which were completed in one day ".
