Microsoft Windows is an operating system family created by Microsoft Corporation. One of its major strengths is the massive library of games it can run, by virtue of DirectX; one of its major downsides is the rampant security issues the OS ecosystem as a whole suffers from, in addition to the increasingly-invasive telemetry gathered by later consumer editions.

In the most basic terms possible, Microsoft Windows is a graphical-orientated operating system that is able to, within reason, maintain compatibility with software designed to run on previous iterations. More recent editions, such as Windows XP have been targeted at the growing popularity of networking, home multimedia, and wireless capability. The majority of PC-developed video games are primarily coded for Microsoft Windows' graphical API, DirectX.
