1) Holes put in walls of buildings, often rectangular or square, which contain glass. They are there to both let in light and provide a nice view of the outside world.

2) The most popular Computer Operating System today, 'invented' by Microsoft Corporation. It has good ease of use and a wide range of commercial software available.

Many computer experts ('nerds') say that Windows is bloated, unstable, insecure and requires users to upgrade too often. However, Windows is a perfectly fine Desktop OS for non, semi computer literate people and gamers, provided they can install a firewall, virus scanner and spyware remover.

However, for people more experienced with computers or for business applications, other Operating Systems such as Linux or *BSD are faster, more stable and secure, cheaper (erm, free) and more customisable than Windows.

Unfortunately, most of these OSes are harder to use and cannot run Windows software, although there are good free alternatives to Windows software for OSes like Linux such as Open Office for MS Office and Mozilla for IE.

Glass panes common in the walls of buildings, especially sky scrapers, allowing people inside to see the outside and to let light in.
Windows have been around for thousands of years, although they were originally just holes in the walls of buildings, without any glass panes.

Windows should not be confused with the remarkably unstable and virus-susceptible Windoze.
Yesterday, I was wondering if it was raining or not, so I looked outside through the windows and saw that it was, in fact, raining. Without my windows, I could have gotten wet.

An operating system that is quite easy to install and use. Crashes more often than not ('98 does anyway), but is generally a nice OS for people who want to use a computer AND have a life outside of the house at the same time.
Windows just crashed so I threw my PC out of the window.
