For some reason I had a Windows 95 flashback today. It was kind of fun, actually.
I remember the "Start Me Up" commercials, and the Weezer/Happy Days video on the install disc. Netscape Navigator was the big browser, and a lot of people had Juno's free e-mail which is still free. Net@ddress was blanketing the net with "free e-mail for life" ads, which turned out to only be free for 3 years, a very short life! There was the constant hassle of configuring dial-up networking, plus the fact that dial-up networking wasn't even installed on "95" by default. I got so many help requests from friends who installed AOL then found out it would hose the regular dialup on Windows.
Those were the days. IRC was roaring with chat, and there was the fabulous glitzy WBS community. I still keep in touch with some of the WBS'ers. There were still a few true BBS's online where the really good files could be found. 😀
The biggest thing about Windows 95 was that if you didn't sit in the chair with your butt clenched just right, you got constant bluescreens, the BSoD.
Enjoy The Microsoft Sound which was the Windows 95 boot up tune. I still have my Linux boxes play it to this very day.
