Microsoft Windows 95 is celebrating it’s 12th year anniversary since it was launched August 24 1995. The 32-bit successor of famous OSes Windows 3.1, Windows for Workgroups and MS-DOS. Windows 95 started it all. I remember an advertisement on a PC magazine — “DOS is Dead” — a Windows 95 Ad. Two months after the official launch, that Windows 95 had sold millions of copies. A year later, it boasted sales of 40 million units. Although Microsoftno longer supports Windows 95 there are still some that uses Windows 95. after it still has a DOS operating system to back it up, which is very stable OS.
“Windows 95 has been much anticipated and much has been written about it. But fundamentally, it is about unlocking more of the potential of computing,” Bill Gates, Microsoft’s chairman said in a statement about the launch. “We are moving into the next era of computing, which includes broader communications via email and the online world, dazzling multimedia and games, and richer educational software.”
“During the last decade, Windows 95 and Office 95 transformed the way people work,” Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s chief executive said during the simultaneous business launch of Exchange 2007, Office 2007 and Vista in November last year.
I am a day late but heck… Happy Birthday Windows 95.
