Happy B-Day Windows 95

On August 24, 1995, 12 years ago today, Microsoft Corp released Windows 95. As a Tech, I remember hating it, as did most Techs that I knew. We had jokes about it too. Two of my favorites: “Friends don’t let friends run Windows 95” and “Windows 95 (Noun). A 32-bit patch for a 16-bit GUI shell, running on top of a 8-bit operating system, designed for a 4-bit processor, by a two bit company, that can’t stand 1-bit of competition!”

In 12 years, when Windows Vista is 13 years old, I wonder what the computer world will look like.
