The common name for MicrosoftWindows.

Note: MicrosoftCorporation does NOT own this name! MicrosoftCorporation tried to sue (now Linspire) over dilution of their trademark, but the judges said that Windows was a common term used for any windowing system and there was plenty of prior art before they came along.

The X Windowing System is NOT EVER to be called "X Windows."
