Windows NT, where NT means New Technology, is a family of Microsoft's 32-bit operating system first released in July 1993 and Windows NT 3.1. NT was designed for high end workstations and servers. It was originally designed to be a powerful high-level language-based processor-independent multiprocessing multiuser operating system with features comparable to Unix to complement workstation versions of Windows that were based on MS-DOS until 2001. It was the first 32-bit version of Windows. Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 are the latest versions of Windows NT.
