Happy 20th Birthday, Windows 95!

There are some pretty interesting articles out there on the release of this venerable operating system. This one has GIF files of the good old screensavers...

I remember the first time I saw the fish screensaver, it was in a computer store, I was flabbergasted! Thought it was absolutely amazing. Our first computer was a 386 and I was fairly proficient at all the DOS commands. Can hardly remember a single one now.

I loved the fish screensaver... So did our cat. She would go around the back of the monitor to see where the fish went! I'll have to see if I can find a picture I took of her watching it.

A nostalgia trip thanks Draclvr! Not sure if it was Windows 95 but I remember having a set of dinosaur images for the cursor to indicate states like busy.
