Windows In what has surprised me greatly, nobody has submitted anything to us regarding this day in the history of computing. Sure, memories of her may not be fond, and with the magical unicorn power of hindsight you'd rather forget you ever dated her so intensely, but she served a purpose. She led a revolution that changed the world forever, and while you may have hoped for a more charismatic leader, I think it's unfair not to honour the fact that she turned 15 today.

Wow I feel really old, I remember Windows 95 came out when I was in 7th grade. My family upgraded our Windows 3.11 Packard Bell 650cd which had an Intel 486sx2 50Mhz processor with 16MB of RAM to Windows 95. Though Windows 95 wasn't perfect, IMHO it was a heck of lot better than Windows 3.11.

The Packard Bell couldn't be upgraded to Windows 98( the 486sx2 lacked a math co-processor), but I was able to give it the Windows 98 look and feel by installing Internet Explorer 4 with Active Desktop. Ah good times.
