Windows 95 is 25 years old, that’s how it started

Time 25 years before today. People lined up at the United States’ largest computer retail store, Compa USA, and Best Buy at midnight. It wasn’t a Call of Duty game, Apple’s latest iPod, or any new hardware that these customers have been waiting for. It was actually a piece of software, Windows 95.

On August 24, 1995, Microsoft’s Windows 95 was released. It was made public with great expectations. The software was unveiled by Hollywood comedian Jay Leno, along with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.

That day was a big celebration for Microsoft. Today, the start button that we press on the computer is called ‘Start Me Up’ and big advertisements are being broadcast on televisions.

The company created an hour-long cyber sitcom for Windows 95 with Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry. The Windows 95 software became so popular that it sold 7 million copies in its first five weeks.

Aside from the pomp and circumstance of the public ceremony, computer geeks were wondering what to choose between the Pentium and 486 processors, IDE and SCSI hard drives, double speed CD ROMs and sound blaster audio cards to get the most out of Windows 95. Microsoft had added many new features to the software.

But the biggest features were the new start button, menu, taskbar. These features made it easy to discover applications and navigate the operating system. Improving multitasking and graphical interfaces were the biggest leaps from Windows 3.1 and MS DOS to 95. But that interface was the same for Macintosh and OS / 2 users.

Not everything in Windows 95 is just a start button. Apart from the 32-bit OS (operating system), another important feature is that it also supports long filenames of more than 250 words.

Today it seems to be a basic feature of 2020, but at that time this feature made naming documents much easier. Another great feature is the plug and play. It automatically detects and installs the hardware. Plug and play have improved a lot in recent releases.

And that is the end of the topic: Windows 95 is 25 years old, that’s how it started

OnePlus 9 Series Announcement Teased for March 8, Launch Date Likely to Be Revealed

Published

on

The OnePlus “Moonshot” webpage doesn’t give away much. On a stark black background, it shows a photo of the Earth, with the message, “Something new is on the horizon. Stay tuned, March 8.” You can enter your email address and subscribe for notifications. Once you enter an email ID and subscribe, however, OnePlus doesn’t send any mail with information or teasers on the upcoming smartphone series – Gadgets 360 could verify independently. A fine-print disclaimer at the bottom of the page reads, “Subscribe to receive news, promotions, and recommendations about OnePlus products and services from OnePlus, its agencies and partners.”

Apart from these, there’s no mention of the upcoming OnePlus 9 series or OnePlus Watch that is expected to launch alongside later this month. So, it can be speculated that on March 8, the company will announce the launch date for the upcoming lineup of smartphones. On the other hand, previous leaks suggested that the OnePlus 9 series could launch on March 23, or mid-March at the earliest. Hence, it could also be assumed that the company could announce the actual launch date on March 8. The company has remained tight-lipped on its social media channels as well.
