On August 24, 1995, Windows 95 was born. Windows 95 was a huge commercial success and was considered one of greatest events in Bill Gates’ life.
Windows 95 was a major upgrade from its predecessors. It featured a brand new interface style with the Windows Taskbar and Start Menu we all know today. It also moved to a 32-bit subsystem from the previous 16-bit.
The following is one of the commercials for Windows 95.
The new taskbar was a major milestone in Microsoft Windows. It significantly enhanced the ability for computers to multi-task. This same concept of the taskbar is still in use today.
The taskbar surely evolved over the years, but even today with Windows 7, still carries the overall look.
Happy 15th Birthday to Windows 95!
