I remember using Acorns and RISC OS in the old 386 Windows 3.1 days. It was great, the PC booted in seconds and seemed so powerful compaired with Windows.
Oh and RISC OS had that Icon Bar years before Win 95 had a Task Bar. (I don't think we need to worry about that patent)
I might try VirtualRiscPC myself or dig out that old Acorn - I wonder if I can find an Acorn mouse?
RISC OS had it's Icon Bar long before it was even called RISC OS. :-)
Several prominent RISC OS programmers joined Microsoft in the early 90s, I believe joining the OS division, and there were several Acorn machines hanging around on desks in Seattle. It's almost certain that elements of RISC OS influenced the development of Windows 95.
Besides the Icon Bar, the right-click pop-up menus in Win95 almost certainly owe their heritage to RISC OS too.
