    The aim of the c++ class concept is to provide...a tool that can be used for creating new types...A type is a concrete representation of a concept...

    B. Stroustrup, C++ Programming Language 3rd ed., 10.1
    A window class is specific to Windows ie is NOT a language feature. It is a string or atom representation of a unique identifier that is registered with the system and is used to create windows identified by that unique 'class' name.
