Happy Birthday Win 95

Windows 95 was a pivotal product in Microsoft history. It marked the true birth of Internet Explorer, which was integrated with the OS and ultimately killed off Netscape. Win 95 was also the first truly enterprise-ready desktop operating system (except for stability issues which, quite frankly, still plague Windows today).

Last month, Win 95 turned 15. It boasted a better GUI, a briefcase feature for moving files between multiple computers and the Start button. Like with the newest versions of Halo or iPads, folks actually lined up to be one of the first to buy this new puppy.
