Teens try Windows 95, adults feel old

Remember the Fine Brothers? Hahaha… Anyway…

Remember Windows 95? How Microsoft successfully did their best to turn every PC into a Macintosh?

The Start button, the dozen of floppies to swap during installation, the odd bonus clips, the movie trailer, and the music video you had on the CD-ROM version, the faulty drivers, the blue screens, the endless number of OEM versions with varied USB support, the extra Plus! package to install the first version of Internet Explorer, the hundreds of steps to take for installing a TCP/IP stack just to get on the Internet via dial-up without having to sign up with MSN… The memories go on. Windows 95 has its shares of problems, but it was certainly a huge step after Windows 3.1x (the x meaning 3.1, 3.11, or whatever).
