Ten Years Ago Today

A red-letter day for PC’s everywhere, as Microsoft released “Project Chicago” – better known these days as “Windows 95”. This hearalded a change in the way we used our computers – bringing in such classic ideas as the “Blue Screen of Death”, random Exception Errors, and a driver model that made life really really fun if you installed the wrong display drivers.

I actually remember where I was too – I was on a course with my previous employer, learning how to program FoxPro for DOS!

One thought on “Ten Years Ago Today

  1. I remember where I was too: in Sainsburys, picking up my free copy of The Times. If only Microsoft’s marketing campaigns were as generous these days!?!
