Windows 95 Turns 15

An anonymous reader writes “15 years ago on this day, Microsoft’s then new Windows 95 was released. Among other things it moved users away from the archaic file manager and program manager to Windows explorer and the start menu. Compared to today’s “social desktop”, I’d much rather have the simpler and more sparese (pre Internet Explorer integrated) Windows Explorer, though I do not like the (lack of) stability that Windows 95 offers. Of course if you were alive then, you’ve probably seen the commercials.” I fondly recall downloading build after build and installing them. But within months of the official release, I switched to Linux.
