The first version of Visual Studio was VS97. Windows 3 was around long before that. Even 95 was.

Its a snake eating its own tail.

MS are developing Windows with their tools and developing their tools using Windows.

Much of windows was developed in C++ but most of the important (core) parts were made with MASM.

"VisualStudio" is just a brand name. I would expect that the current team uses it. It's their thing after all....

Oh...

First place I saw a GUI type file manager was an old Apple. Xerox did it too or first or something? Ok. hf reading that wikipedia page ;)

GUIs are great. Soon as Linux releases with GNOME etc became readily available, all of a sudden half the world was became an overnight Linux "expert".

There's a few different companies experimenting with VR/AR right now.... but when they make a decent AR GUI we will all know they stole the idea from the Wachowski brothers right?
