If you’re like me, you feel that the cutting-edge features and layout of Windows 10, awesome as they are, are missing something. What precisely that “something” is can be difficult to describe, but I can safely say that Windows 95 had it.
(And if you’re not like me—if you’re too young to be like me—you’d better read on and see what Windows 95 was all about; what a real operating system is made of.)
Although Windows 95 was released less than 25 years ago, it feels as though an entire century has passed since I was able to experience the operating system in all its unimpeded glory. Its sounds, wallpaper options, and default programs and content made for a unique and exciting browsing experience. It’s not that I don’t like talking to Cortana on Windows 10, but I do miss the magic of 95. Windows 95 couldn’t answer my questions or respond to most of my basic inputs in a timely manner. It did, however, always seem to know what I was thinking.
