Windows 95 is a consumer-oriented graphical user interface-based operating system. It was released on August 24, 1995 by Microsoft, and was a significant progression from the company's previous versions of Windows. During development it was referred to by the internal codename Chicago.

Windows 95 was intended to combine the functions of Microsoft's formerly separate MS-DOS and Windows products. It featured significant improvements over the popular Windows 3.1, most visibly the graphical user interface (GUI) whose basic format and structure is still used today in Windows XP. There were also large changes to the underlying workings, including support for 255-character mixed-case long filenames and preemptively multitasked protected-mode 32-bit applications.

Windows 95 followed Windows for Workgroups 3.11 with its lack of support for older, 16-bit x86 processors, thus requiring an Intel 80386 (or compatible) processor running in protected mode.

Ah, yes- those were the days.

Though I will never understand why they thought it necessary that we click on the "START" button in order to turn the thing off! :huh:

Short explanation:
Do you turn the ignition key of a car to turn it off?

So, MS is as logical as a car... though, for some reason, Windows is just as unsafe in the hands of a woman as a car.

Also- I don't know if you can relate Windows to a car- for I don't think your car crashes twice a day!!! :o
