Windings of one sort or another have come with Windows for a long time, I 
think, but none of them are the same as, comparable with, or versions of, Zapf 
Dingbats, which is a completely different symbol font, work of Hermann Zapf, 
one of the 20th C's more eminent font designers.

Wingdings was probably designed in a closet at Redmond.
